A RESOLUTION OF FAITH
BY WAYNE WEIBLE
So, what will the New Year of 2018 hold for us?
Aside from the collective obvious desire for world peace as well as personal peace, there are all kinds of resolutions we can strive for, things that normally focus on ourselves, such as wanting to become healthier and wiser and for sure wealthier.
Most resolutions made at the start of a new year only last a short time, even though made with good intentions. There’s nothing wrong in working toward goals involving these elements even though you may not achieve them to the fullest degree.
However, there is an extremely powerful spiritual resolution far more important for all of us to consider, more so than the personal ones we make; it is one that will affect us for the rest of our life here on earth and hopefully in Heaven. In fact, by striving for such a resolution, we and we alone as individuals have the determining power to achieve it.
This resolution is recommended for all the children of God. It is given to us by Jesus in Holy Scripture and it states: ...and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:30-31).
The promise of taking on this spiritual resolution is that all of the others we may make more than likely will occur. That is because we will be influenced in our requests by living to fulfill this powerful one recommended to us by God.
Judith and I wish you a holy and happy New Year!
