Can We Avert the Spiritual Cliff?

Hi all~

You cannot look at the news without reading/hearing about the fiscal cliff that our nation is facing.  As our president and Congress strive to work a deal, there is another cliff that looms even more dangerously.  It’s a spiritual cliff.  Can it be averted?

Yes!!!  But it starts with each of us.  We must develop a spiritual budget and then stick to it.  Here’s the thing: our spiritual well-being has a direct effect on our physical, emotional, mental and fiscal health.  God has laid out all the principles for a healthy lifestyle in His Word.  The problem is either we don’t know what it says or we don’t do what it says.  We’re sinful and we are heading for a spiritual cliff.

The good news is God has provided a way that we can go to him without going over the cliff.  Trust in God’s son, Jesus, and his finished work on the cross.

I want to challenge you to make 2013 a year of personal spiritual growth.  Here’s some biblical suggestions:

* Spend time daily in God’s word.

* Pray.  Give thanks and praise to God.  Ask Him for wisdom to understand the Bible and live accordingly.

* Love more. Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.

* Attend church and Bible study weekly.  Ask God to put the desire in your heart to be in His house with His people learning His word on a regular basis.

* Take care of your body.  It is the temple of the Holy Spirit of God.

* Take care of your mind.  Don’t fill it with garbage.  Learn new things.  Never stop learning.

* Take care of your financial needs. Don’t overspend.  Start by giving God the first fruits of your income, not the left-overs.

Now let’s go out there and make the best of 2013!


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 

plans to give you hope and a future.”
