“They read from the book, from the law of God, translating to give the sense so that they understood the reading” (Nehemiah 8:8).
Personally, I have never advocated New Year’s resolutions; believing they only add to the fragmentation of overly busy lives. Instead, as followers of Christ, our lives should be driven by a solitary resolve: to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all our being and doing. By this holistic approach, every facet of life is impacted. For this resolve to become reality, however, we must immerse ourselves into scripture; that we might objectively discover the will and purposes of God and, then, live our lives accordingly. With this understanding, each day is a new beginning.
