We don’t know what may befall us in 2022. For some of us, like Paul, we may finish our course this year. Some of us may face persecution and opposition like Paul did. We may be tempted to quit or to sit on the side lines. We may be tempted to quit fighting and just give up. But quitting is not an option for the Christian. Our goals for 2022 should be that we fight the good fight, finish the course God has for us, and defend the faith.

Many of us have good reasons to be bitter. But the Bible commands us to avoid bitterness. Put it away; get rid of it. Confess bitterness as a sin. Forgive those who have wronged you. Refuse to hold on to that hurt. It’s not doing you any good. Don’t brood over the wrongs that others have done to you. Read More ...
