It’s over! Another year has come and gone. Today is the last day of 2021! I am choosing to end this year’s blogs on the final day of 2021. So, welcome to Truth Bomb Friday!
As this year draws to a close and we anticipate the beginning of a new year, I have a question for you: did you accomplish everything you set out to accomplish in 2021? If you are anything like me, the answer is a big resounding NO!
So even though we may have failed, are we hopeless? Should we give up and never try again? I believe again, the answer is a big resounding NO!
I believe that we need to reword the question that we ask ourselves.
While the question, “Did we fail or succeed to accomplish our goals,” may give us factual information, I believe it fails to produce motive.
When our motives are pure and right before God what we attempt to accomplish will be grounded in love. And when our motives are grounded in love we cannot fail!
“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” Galatians 5:6
Some of our goals can be rooted in selfish motives and not in love.
When this happens we may accomplish something but the only beneficiary is ourselves. However, when we pursue goals rooted in love, even when we achieve our goals, others benefit besides ourselves.
For example, we work really hard to achieve an end of the year bonus. When we receive it we give the first portion of it to God and the work that He is doing in the world.
WE NEVER FALL SHORT WHEN OUR FAITH EXPRESSES ITSELF TO OTHERS THROUGH LOVE!
So as we begin a new year with new beginnings and fresh starts, let’s look to setting all of our goals with faith rooted in love.
Set a goal, so that when you accomplish it, both you and others will be blessed!
Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to 2022!
Speak Truth Love
