Remember your journey. Consider what God has done through you.
To respond to the burden God gives you, we’re tempted to make a grand gesture. New year resolutions are often grand gestures. Usually ways to make up for where we’ve failed.
This is not what God’s asking us. He’s asking us to act justly, love mercy and walking humbly with him… and one another.
Doing this means that questions are more often answered with “it depends” rather than “yes” or “no”. Walking with God and one another means we are less likely to jump to conclusions but to explore what’s presented to us, and to be prepared to say “I don’t know”.
