So finally the first day of the New Year is here. We survivied 2012 which was quite a difficult year for me. Glad its over...2013 must get better.
On the morning of the First Day of the Year, I read from James 13: " Is there anyone among you who is wise and understanding? He is to prove it by his good life, by his good deeds performed with humility and wisdom. But if in your heart you are jealous, bitter, and selfish, don't sin against the truth by boasting of your wisdom. such wisdom does not come down from heaven; it belongs to the world, it is unspiritual and demonic. Where there is jealousy and selfishness, there is also disorder and every kind of evil. The wisdom from above is pure first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle and friendly; it is full of compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; it is free from prejudice and hypocrisy. And goodness is the the harvest that is produced from the seeds the peacemakers plant in peace."
I will try to live by those words this year with true wisdom, peaceful, with humility and compassion. Its a tall order but a good standard to live up to.
