The beginning of a New Year gives us an opportunity to correct the mistakes we made in the previous year and try more diligently to do better in the future.
I trust that your New Year will be one of fruitfulness and pleasantness as you seek to honor the Creator of the universe and all men.
1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish. (Psalm 1:1-6 NAU)
