As a new year begins, we look back and ahead. What happened last year? We might look back and rejoice or we might look back at the year with regrets. With the first week of 2015 almost over, we can look forward to what might be possible in the year ahead.
So this month of January, we look for “insight.”
We could be looking at personal insights into life, relationships, God or something else. Whether it’s a memorable book read last year or something that happened recently in missions or a breakthrough in local ministry or witness, January 2015 is a time when we are open to looking back and ahead at the same time to discover new insights and new possibilities.
Let’s gain insight from one another.
In Proverbs 1:2, King Solomon wrote, “to know wisdom and instruction to understand words of insight.” Our goal, no, our prayer, is that these posts, these insights, will help us to understand—either for the first time or for the millionth time—that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)
So here we go, into 2015, together.
