Week 53 Devo – TUESDAY

New Year

It is much easier for us to make resolutions that are temporary. We want to get in shape, make better grades, be a better friend, get along with our parents, use our phones less. While these are all great aspirations, they should not be our ultimate aim or ambition. So, set those resolutions – such as seeking to work out more and gossip less – but above all, seek Jesus. Seeking godliness (conforming to the laws and wishes of God) has value in this life and in the life to come. Setting spiritual resolutions takes steps toward looking more like Jesus. This comes from spending time in His Word and seeking Him in all that we do.

Why do you think it’s easier to set resolutions that only impact improving ourselves physically?

Look back at your goals from yesterday. Where does God fit in them?

What is stopping you from setting spiritual resolutions?
