Resolved to be Kind

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: A lot of our New Year’s resolutions are pretty predictable.

Woman: I'm going to manage my time better.

Man: Cut down on caffeine.

Child: I know Mom and Dad are going to get memberships to the gym because they need more exercise.

Nancy: Have you ever thought about making a resolution to be patient? Jonathan Edwards did.

Jonathan Edwards: When I’m most conscious of provocations to ill-nature and anger, I will strive to feel and act good-naturedly.

Nancy: He says, “When I’m provoked or in a bad mood, I’m going to work at being kind.” Edward’s resolution shows that we don’t have to be controlled by how we feel. Our words and actions can be disciplined, no matter what our emotions are.

This coming year, one of the best things we could resolve is to follow the advice in the book of James: “Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
