8 Things I want to give up in 2018 that will make me a better man of God.
#1 – Give up my past for forgiveness.
While my past does define my past, I will not let it define my future.
#2 – Give up my fears for reverence.
We all have fears, but it is the object of my fear that matters.
#3 – Give up my resistance to obedience.
While I resist change, I was designed for change and to live in obedience to God’s will.
#4 – Give up my excuses for ownership.
Excuses are my greatest obstacle to ownership of a better tomorrow.
#5 – Give up my resentment for thankfulness
The first change begins with me and it often begins with my attitude.
#6 – Give up my control for freedom
Freedom is found not in control, but control of myself.
#7 – Give up my self-righteousness for authenticity
I need to stop trying to impress people because it only leads to being lost in myself.
#8 – Give up my need to be right for relationships
Being in right relationships with people I love is more important than being right.
