Dec. 31 Devotion: Drop The Resolutions

Drop The Resolutions

Luke 16:4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

We find this verse in the midst of a story Jesus is telling his disciples about a rich man and his steward. In verse 3 you find the steward questioning within himself what he would do if he lost his stewardship. Then we get to our text verse and we see he had made up his mind. He says he was resolved at what he would do. Resolved simply means you are firmly determined to do something. We have arrived at that time of year when so many will make resolutions. These seem to be thrown around with very little regard and little intent on keeping them. We don’t need more resolutions in our Christian walk, we need resolved Christians! Even the unjust steward gets commended in verse 8. He was resolved on what he was going to do, and he did it. Resolutions have almost become a joke. People will make them and not give a second thought to breaking them. However, when we are resolved to do something we do it. Think of a time you wanted a new car or a new house. Saving money became a priority then. You were determined to make it happen. Maybe it was a dream vacation you wanted to take. Whatever it was there are things in our lives that we were determined to make it happen. What if we put that same resolve into our walk with Christ in 2022? It could be something as simple as setting a plan and determined to read your Bible through this year. What if we were determined to just be a better Christian? What if we were determined to share the Gospel with at least 1 person a month, 1 a week, or even 1 a day! What if we just sought to be a better friend? We can all look around and see the darkness this world holds. We know the truth! We should be that light for others! Don’t just make the same old resolutions that we will break in a few weeks. Instead pick something out in your walk with Christ and be determined to see it through! It could just change someone else’s life!

Happy New Year to you all!

God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
