Preparing for 2018

It’s that time of year again when you hear of people making New Year Resolutions. I am no different. I do try to set spiritual goals for myself that are realistic but also stretch me to depend upon God for lasting fruit. To that end, I have found Donald Whitney’s questions for self-evaluation very helpful. (  I have been using them in my journal for the past two years. I answer the first ten questions between December 31 and January 1. And I use the remaining questions to answer in my journal throughout the rest of the month. Most of the time the answers overlap, but I do tend to gravitate toward a theme where I need to devote more attention. I hope it will bless you as you prepare for 2018.

Also, on Sunday I mentioned two resources that can help you work through Proverbs. For your family devotions, I recommended Marty Machowski’s Wise Up ( . For your individual growth, I recommended Champ Thonton’s book, Pass it On ( But don’t miss the forest for the trees. prior to using either, I would commend you to read through the book of Proverbs all the way through.
