New Year’s Resolutions

A New Year! And with it the annual New Year’s resolutions! That time of the year when we tell ourselves we’re going to make changes and self-improvements in the year ahead! Riiight! Well resolutions have been around for centuries. Likely the Babylonians were the first, over 4,000 years ago with promises to their gods to return borrowed objects and pay their debts—hoping that keeping their promise would mean favorable food crops in the year ahead. Or Judaism’s New Year—Rosh Hashanah, which culminates in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a time to reflect on individual wrongdoings over the year—and seek and offer forgiveness. But regardless of the origin or creed—the concept of a New Year’s resolution is to think about self-improvement. This year consider reading the Bible one of your New Year’s resolutions! Invite someone to join you—engage together in this book of books!
