Are you a man of resolutions? Many go through the motions of making resolutions to accomplish something in the upcoming year that they want to pursue, complete, start, quit, or attempt even when they know fully well they may not be successful. Sometimes that’s because the resolution is something that is good for them to accomplish at some level.
For men, one of those that often make the resolution list is to “spiritually lead your family better.” If it doesn’t make the list with weight loss, exercise, et al, it’s probably because so many of us don’t know what that looks like. We think it just means more work. And, many of us didn’t see it modeled well growing up. Maybe we’ve turned over the spiritual aspect of our family to our wives. That is not how God intended it to be in our home.
So, as you consider your resolutions for 2018, here are some things that you can do to help you accomplish the goal to lead your family spiritually better in 2018 than you did in 2017 (and, even if it’s not a resolution, this is still a good list to read through and deploy).
Make it simple…don’t choose all 25 but choose your top 5 to accomplish in 2018 or schedule them throughout the year. Here’s the list:
Did any of these scream to you, “PICK ME, PICK ME”? Which one(s) will you work on in 2018? Share some thoughts below to help you be accountable to moving forward with leading your family spiritually in 2018!
