True Resolve

Reg Grant on March 20, 2009 in DTS Devotional

My New Year’s resolutions are beginning to fade. For the great diarist Samuel Pepys, however, they were serious business. He wrote: “At my office till twelve at night, making my solemn vows for the next year…, but I fear I have a little too severely bound myself in some things and in too many, for I fear I may forget some. But however, I… shall by the blessing of God observe to perform or pay my forfeits punctually.” Eccl. 5:4: “When you make a vow to God, do not delay in paying it. For God takes no pleasure in fools: Pay what you vow!” (Eccl. 5:4) Let’s make fewer resolutions and make them stick.
