New Year's Resolutions!


Submitted by Anne Eury

Objects:  None needed, but you could use a calendar if you wish.

Theme:  How to insure a happy and prosperous New Year.

Scripture: For I resolved to know nothing ....except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

At the beginning of a new year, it is traditional that we make resolutions.  Resolutions are promises concerning things that we will try to accomplish in the year to come.  Usually, they have to do with losing weight or something such as that.  A wise man once made a list of resolutions that I want to share with you today.  I believe that they are resolutions that will help to insure that we will have a happy and prosperous New Year.

In the New Year, be sure to  LIE, CHEAT, DRINK, SWEAR and STEAL more than you did last year.

LIE back and relax just a little more this new year.  Let a little more life happen to you without so much worry.

CHEAT  failure.  Don't be afraid to try something new because you think you may fail.  It is through failure that we   learn the most valuable lessons.

DRINK from the fountain of knowledge.  Many people around you have already been down roads you are about to travel.  Learn from mistakes they have made.  Take what they have learned and use it.

SWEAR to do your best.  All the time, in every situation.  That is all anybody will ever ask.

 STEAL  a little time for God.  Everyday take a little more time to develop your relationship with God.

So, if you lie, cheat, drink, swear and steal just a little more in the next year, you will have a profitable and enjoyable year ahead!  God bless you in 2001!

Dear Lord, help us to live this year in a way that will be pleasing to you.  Amen.
