Hey, can anybody tell me where 2011 went? Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago that we rang in 2011 as the New Year? And here we are three months into the New Year. This past year sure has had a lot of things take place huh? Many good things happened to us as well as some bad things. There is one common denominator with everything that has taken place this year; whether it’s good or bad, and that is this: It’s in the past.
The Bible says in Matthew 16:26, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Has 2011 been a profitable year for you so far? I hope so. But, is it profitable by man’s standards or God’s? Have you been living for God 25 percent of the time, 50 percent of the time, or 75 percent of the time?
