New Year Resolutions

“…Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it..." -Gen 4:6-7 NIV italics and emphasis mine

As we enter into the new year, it is customary to have new year's resolutions in place...contemplating what one wants to achieve in the year. What we often don't do is take time to consider what we should have done in the ending year. May be it is because we don't realize our destiny is realized in what we do...the choices that we make, the path we choose to walk in. God has given us, humans, the free will.



What God tells Cain is astounding, God is saying your destiny is in the choice that you make. He says IF you do well, that is, if you change what you do...you will be accepted same as your brother, OTHERWISE, sin is seeking to destroy you. Deut 30:19, God says He has set before us life and death, blessing and curses for everyone to choose. God has given us everything at our disposal...it all comes down to us to make a choice (and follow through) of what is going to be.
