Happy New Year! I hope you had wonderful Christmas and New Year celebrations! Over the holiday, I had the opportunity to watch Unconditional, a film inspired by the life of Joe Bradford (who has dedicated his life to serving at-risk kids in Nashville). This film inspired me to 1) count my blessings 2) re-evaluate my priorities and 3) realize that the Lord blessed me not so that I can keep the blessing to myself, but so I can share it with others. So as I pondered my resolutions and goals for 2014, I asked myself, “What adjustments can I make in my life to show people God’s incredible love? How can I give more? How can I serve?” And those questions helped guide my goals.
Need a little new year inspiration? Check out Unconditional and consider David Platt’s words:
“The gospel does not prompt you to mere reflection; the gospel requires a response.”
Have a blessed 2014!
