Two Goals for 2016: 1-11-16
Happy New Year again for 2016!
I would like to remember how good it is to start a new year for goals. Two for you to think about…
First, St. Paul once wrote, “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16). St. Paul reminds us to take care of our body. Yes, God gave you a body and a soul! Our health is a gift from God so think of gifts back to God through exercise, diet, walking, stop smoking, etc.
Second, make a goal to read the Bible every day. The Bible is the best book ever. Period. Here are some ways to help you read the Scriptures:
· Want to read the whole Bible? Find a “track” for you to follow on the Internet or in a pamphlet. One example is this:
o Day 1 = Genesis 1, Psalm 1, Matthew 1:17
o Day 2 = Genesis 2, Psalm 2, Matthew 1:18-25
o Day 3 = Genesis 3, Psalm 3, Matthew 2
· Want to read parts of the Bible?
o Check out the Psalms—150 poems and prayers
o Check out the Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
o Or the New Testament
· Want to read verses each day?
o Your own Bible
o Social network
And if you need a Bible, please buy one, grab one from our Church’s or get an application on your phone!Good luck and God Bless for 2016!
