What’s One New Year’s Resolution Worth Keeping?

Most of us who make New Year’s Resolutions have already broken them.  The average person makes it until January 6 before he or she breaks a resolution.

So many resolutions are about ourselves… lose weight, don’t spend as much, quit smoking, eat better, and the like.

Would we keep our resolutions longer if they were focused on others and not ourselves?  Possibly!

Think about ways you can help your family, your neighbors, parents of your child’s friends, co-workers, anyone who God puts in your path.  What can you do to make a difference?

If you listen to KTIS 98.5 fm, they’ve created the Hands & Feet app which can be downloaded to any mobile device.  There are lots of great ideas and opportunities of how you and your family can keep your resolution of helping others.

Check it out!

Of course, we at Breakthrough have lots of opportunities as well and would love your partnership to meet the needs of the homeless around the Twin Cities:

  • Gather a group of friends to cook and serve a meal on a Sunday night
  • On a worship team?  Ask them to volunteer to lead worship one Sunday night
  • Drive a bus?  We need help picking up the homeless from Dorothy Day Center every Sunday and Tuesday.
  • Have extra clothes around your house?  Gather them and bring them to our clothes closet.
  • And, much more!

“And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.”  1 Thes 5:14-15
