Is your New Years Resolution an Idol to Self?

Posted on Jan. 02, 2015

Take another look at your resolutions. Are they all about you? Are they designed to make you look good? Or have they been born out of the worship of God, the love of God and are truly for the glory of God. Are they the result of faith? Do not be deceived: resolutions for the glory of man are idolatry. It could be that our new years resolutions are nothing more than idolatry of self - socially acceptable culturally laudable expressions of pride. This is why human virtue is not always of God. Have your resolutions arisen from faith, for "Whatever is not from faith is sin." (Romans 14:23), and "Without faith it is impossible to please God" (Heb 11:6). Therefore, as you make resolutions remember the heart of the matter, "Whatever you do, do all for the glory of God" (1 Cor 10:31).
