                                      have in common except for the last one? Aren’t they all looking for ways to
                                      improve yourself to make your life better? However, did you notice what was
Saint Paul’s Lutheran                 missing from the list? There was absolutely no mention of a person’s

  Mount Calvary, WI 53057              Let’s resolve to put Jesus first this New Year. How can we do that? Well,
                                      here are examples of some resolutions you could try:

                                                                 Read the entire Bible

                                      I pray that God richly blesses you this New Year as you continue to live in
                                      Him and for Him.
