A New Year's Resolution

I have been thinking about making a new year's resolution. I don't do it every year, but once in a while, I like to challenge myself.

This coming year, I resolve to memorize the book of Titus.

I love the pastoral epistles. They are short in length, rich in theology, and filled with practical principles for living out my Christian faith.

Since Titus is the shortest of the three pastoral epistles--and since I have never memorized a book of the Bible before--I plan to memorize Titus.

I wonder how it will change me. Will I think and act any differently next year? Will I be closer to the Lord? Hopefully it will be a life-changing experience.

Do you have a new year's resolution?

Now that is some work.

Thanks for the comment, Mike. Hopefully it will be easier than losing 20 pounds. (I may try to do that too, but I'm not making any formal resolutions to that effect.)

I wish you well that one. I tried memorizing 2 Peter chapter 2, but didn't. My memory is horrid.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!

Thanks, Christy. I'll give it a shot. If I don't succeed, I may keep trying in 2011. I hope you have a happy new year, too.
