It’s the last Friday of the year, and I am a little late posting this morning, the pillow was my friend this morning.
As the year closes, it’s a good time to think about how you did own your goals this year, and the one word 365 thing we spoke of back in January. My word was STRETCH, and I feel pretty good about how that has worked for me, although I think I become distracted from that a bit in the last 8 weeks or so. I will reveal my word for 2013 next week, but this is a reminder to you and encouragement to consider one word this weekend.
And here is something else to consider today and this weekend as you ponder your word. I love this tweet from Nike Running
especially the hash tag #In2013NoMore, which evidently is big on Twitter now.
Anyway, I hope In2013ThereIsMore of this:
11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people.16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:11-17
