This new year would be a good time for you to decide to do right for God. Be a better Christian, man, husband and father. Be a better Christian, woman, wife and mother. Be a better Christian single person or teenager. The Bible tells of a man who decided to do right no matter what happened. Daniel decided or purposed in his heart to do right (Daniel 1:8). The king changed Daniel’s home, name and way of life, but the king could not change Daniel’s heart. Daniel decided to do right and say “no” to sin and the world. He decided to follow God. You can be the same as Daniel and decide to do right. Say “no” to sin and “yes” to God.
One Deaf man told me that he went to horse races every weekend. He became discouraged and unhappy because he lost much money. He could not stop or break the habit of gambling. He hated his life but could not stop. Many are as this deaf man. They are saved, but stay in old ways and habits. Sin will always destroy your life. This year make the days ahead the best that your have ever known. Do right and pray, “Create (make) in me a clean heart, O God; and renew (make new) a right spirit within me” (Ps 51:10). You can do right. You can. You Can!
