Some Good Resolutions for the New Year

It’s the last month of 2021 and we are starting to look forward to a new year. For some of us that means thinking about what we want to change or improve in our lives. Here are some helpful resolutions for any Christian from Harriet Beecher Stowe. You might consider putting them on your list:

Let us all resolve–First, to attain the grace of SILENCE. Second to deem all FAULT-FINDING that does no good a SIN, and to resolve when we are happy ourselves, not to poison the atmosphere for our neighbors by calling on them to remark every painful and disagreeable feature of their daily life. Third, to practice the grace and virtue of PRAISE.”

If we could all do this in 2022,,we’d be happier and so would those around us!
