A new year always gives us a psychological opportunity to "start over". However, it's our daily choices that provide the real opportunity - to send our future in a positive direction or one that will take us toward ruin.
This Sunday we'll be returning to our journey through Scripture with The Story. This week we'll be looking at chapter 13 and the life of King Solomon (found in 1 Kings 3-11 among other places). This will be the first in our series that looks at the various Kings who, too often, made decisions that lead to their own - and the nation's - destruction. Let's make a commitment to learn from these negative examples. Solomon was the wisest man to ever live and yet wisdom only benefits us if we make proper choices based on that wisdom. His downfall was giving his heart - and primary influence in his life - to ungodly spouses (not a good decision - and that's not even addressing the decision to have multiple spouses!).
So here's to a great 2015 - individually and together as Community Covenant Church!
Let's seek God's wisdom in every decision and then follow through in a way that brings honor to Him!
