New Year’s Resolutions

I came across these New Year’s resolution suggestions from a missionary of years gone by. Jonathan Goforth suggested these as “Rules for Daily Living”. These may not seem earth-shattering, but if everyday Christians lived like this, I believe 2019 would be a year of personal and corporate revival.

  1. Seek to give much — expect nothing.
  2. Put the very best construction on the actions of others.
  3. Never let a day pass without at least a quarter of an hour spent in the study of the Bible.
  4. Never omit daily morning and evening private prayer and devotion.
  5. In all things seek to know God’s Will and when known obey at any cost.
  6. Seek to cultivate a quiet prayerful spirit.
  7. Seek each day to do or say something to further Christianity among the heathen.
