What’s your top priority for the New Year? A recent event clarified mine.
The day after Christmas, my daughter learned a friend’s twenty-three year old cousin was killed on the way to Christmas dinner. His older brother had died just fourteen months earlier. I can only imagine the devastation this family is feeling.
How do we prepare for whatever life throws our way?
I had sat down with my copy of Daily Light when she delivered the news. I opened it and read, “I give them [my sheep] eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand” (Jn. 10:28 NKJV).
A car crash snatched this young man from earth but not from Jesus. There is nothing we do in life more important than knowing Him. He comforts and guides us through this life and welcomes us to heaven. Nothing can snatch us from His hand.
If you don’t know Him, please open your heart to Him today. If you do, make knowing Him better your top priority for 2016. Nothing matters more. We need the comfort and wisdom of our Savior to thrive in life.
