New Years Eve has a Christmas Eve vibe to it because we get to wake up tomorrow to something yet unknown, like some kind of fresh start, a clean slate, a brand new shared experience. Sure, we could set goals and make resolutions any day, but the authority of the calendar kicks us firmly in the behind, telling us that now’s the time. 01/01/2016. The first number changes a dozen times a year. The second number changes every day. But the last number changing… that’s something you see only once a year. Instead of setting goals on what to do, I’ve set growth objectives for who to be. This way of living that best flows from a growing relationship with the Author of life. To know Jesus better, to be more like Him with my family, with my friends, in ministry, in the community — that’s how I want to grow. Since doing flows from being, I anticipate that this will change me and how I do life. Starting from doing has always helped me do more. Starting from being will hopefully help me grow and do the right stuff. And not for my sake, but for the sake of others. Jesus was obedient, but not for Himself. I want to be more like that in 2016. With His help, for His glory.

About radamdavidson

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson). I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).
