Not even wine could be kept permanently—I’m sure there was a way they could tell when to throw it out. For me, there’s nothing I hate worse than a flat soda. You buy your 2 Liter of Coke or Dr. Pepper in my case, you open it up, drink maybe half of it, and then come back in a day or so and you might as well throw it out because it’s not worth drinking anymore.
There’s no way to go back in time—once we hit 12 AM, there’s no way to get any more out of 2006. And there are some things worth leaving behind.
Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said, “His heart was as great as the world but there was no room in it for the memory of a wrong.”
As we step into 2007 let’s forget all of the petty hurts and injustices, and all of the big hurts and injustices from 2006 and 2005 and 2004 and 1994 etc. etc. etc. If you can forget only one thing in 2006, forget the grievances that you have against others whether they be friend or foe and get on with your life
1 John 1:9-- If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
I would not be surprised if it is discovered that 2/3 of those who suffer mental illness are worrying about something over which they have no control.
Worry pulls tomorrow's cloud over today's sunshine.
C. Swindoll, Questions Christians Ask, p. 18.
Worry is wasting today's time to clutter up tomorrow's opportunities with yesterday's troubles.
Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.
Has that every happened to you? You start worrying about something and pretty soon you discover that it has consumed all your other thoughts. Worrying about last year can tarnish and taint this year.
The Wineskin of Failures
Too many people today are paralysed by the fear of failure. It would be easy to look back on all the things that didn’t go right in the past year. It would be easy to deduce our own incompetence, the incompetence of others, or how something is a waste of time in the future because we remember it didn’t work the first time.
In Philippians 3:13-14 Paul draws a comparison between our life and a race. He says, “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Since I’ve been here, I’ve been observing and I see a church that loves each other. A fellowship that truly desires to please God and know Him more.
