January and Beyond

calendarAs we close out the first month of this new year (already!) I have been thinking about what a good friend of mine, Randy Hurst, calls “Jim Bradford’s Frustrating, Impossible but Right Rules for Living.” He heard me talk about them in a sermon from 2nd Timothy and has posted them, under that title, by his work desk. They go like this:

1. Put your best energies into your most important relationships;

2. Put your best resources into your highest priorities;

3. Put your best attitudes into your deepest disappointments.

Frustrating? Yes. Impossible? Maybe. Worth a try? Too much hangs in the balance this year not to — for God’s glory and for the sake of those who need us at our best.
