As we enter the New Year, we face tremendous changes and uncertainty – the hopeful beginning of a new Presidency and yet the daunting prospect of a serious economic downturn. These are challenging and concerning times. It is also a time when we need to stop and evaluate our lives to determine what is most important and what our priorities should be. I suggest the following priorities. Though times may continue to be challenging, you can be assured that if you make these priorities your own that your life will be abundantly blessed.
• We must make our first priority trusting God and living a life that is obedient to Him and His Word;
• After God, our second priority should be the well-being, love, and care of our families;
• We should “love our neighbor as ourselves,” helping those who are less fortunate than we are whenever the opportunity presents itself; and
• Lastly, we should work diligently, faithfully in our place of employment – regardless of what we do for a living — doing our work “as unto the Lord.”
I am confident that the new President will set an example for all of us as he leads our nation during these trying times. My prayer is that President Obama will seek and depend on God to guide and direct him during his presidency.
In closing, my desire for each of you and your families is that you have a healthy, safe and prosperous new year and that God will bless you richly during the coming year.
