Greetings in the name of our Reigning King!
As we begin the New Year of 2023, I can’t help but remember a teaching that I heard one time regarding marriage. Now although I can’t remember everything about the teaching; the main premise of it centered around a point system. In other words, if you did something good for your wife, you would earn a point. Some things, for example, like doing the wash or the dishes after a meal, could earn you even more than one point. Of course, the more points you earned, the more attractive you became.
The only caveat of this teaching, however, was that at midnight, all accumulated points vanished. In other words, just because you did the dishes the night before, does not mean that you can carry them over for the next six months (sorry guys).
Well let me encourage you today, this same truth applies to this New Year. 2022 is over. So too are all its victories, as well as, all its defeats. That means our slate is clean. And my challenge to each of us today is simple; let’s let go of our past so that we might enter our future. The apostle Paul said it this way, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”
