I know I’m about a week late on this New Year’s resolution thing, but I’m working my way through my unread Google Reader subscriptions and I wanted to highlight this great advice from Matt Appling at The Church of No People.
If you want my opinion (and why wouldn’t you?), you should only make one resolution. This one resolution can apply to everyone, everywhere. It does not require any physical exercise. You don’t need to buy any equipment. It will literally solve just about any of your problems.
My one resolution is this:
Can we please just think. Think before you eat. Think before you speak. Think before you blog. Think before you turn on the TV, tell a joke, make a criticism, say a prayer, curse under your breath, spend more money.
Yes. Please. When Matt says that thinking “will literally solve just about any of your problems,” he’s right. If you won’t listen to an atheist on this, listen to a Christian. Think about your choices. Think about your beliefs. Think about how you are living your life.
Think before you say a prayer.
