1. Commit to be even more radical for Jesus.
Be radical regardless of the circumstaces in your life. God is good. He is sovereign and worthy of worship.
2. Kick it up a notch loving your family.
Husbands, loves your wives as Christ loved The Church; and wives honor and respect your husbands. Die to self and serve your marriage partner in love. Go to another level of biblically parenting your children. Do more to love your family well.
3. Do all you can do to be healthy: Diet, Rest, and Exercise.
Diet, rest and exercise is a triple braided cord for health. Start this year and make whatever commitments you need to make to walk in physical health. But, also walk in spiritual health. Diet, rest, and exercise in spiritual health. What diet are you eating? Are you resting in his presence? Are you exercising your faith? Let's grow in our physical health and let's grow in our spiritual health.
4. Work to get your financial picture in order.
Put your finances in a place of organization and simplicity. If you are the individual who handles the finances at home, is it such so that if you were incapacitated for a period of time, someone could step in very easy to take care of the finances?
5. Be careful not to judge.
Let's realize that everyone has a story, and you may not know their story. You may not be seeing accurately what needs to be seen, or seeing the total picture. Let's make it a priority to commit to honor and value one another. Be loving and caring. Don't be quick to judge.
6. Be more aware of how to bless people.
How does God want you to sow blessings into the lives of other people?
7. Be Intentional
Have inentionality; be deliberate, calculated and consious. Plan, study out, and be willful and purposeful. It's important to take on the character trait of intentionality, because God is an intentional God. God has been intentional with his grace and mercy. Let's live intentionally towards life, and the Lord, towards our families and towards others. Let's be intentional about building the Kingdom of God. Let's be intentional about our Goals.
