Ever feel like life is a merry-go-round, without a lot of “merry”?
If you’ve seen many New Year’s come and go, you probably know the feeling. Been here. Done that. New Year’s resolutions that are broken before they are cold. According to statistics, the percentage of Americans who keep their New Year's resolution for one month is 55. Who keep it for six months: 40. Who keep it for two years: 19 (John C. Norcross, et.al.; and "Addictive Behaviors" reported in U.S. News & World Report, 1/16/89. Leadership, Vol. 10).
Truth is, there’s a long history of that kind of frustration and failure. Starting this Sunday, we’re going to walk through the Old Testament book of Judges. It reveals that the children of Israel were not so different from us. We will learn from their experiences both what not to do and what to do to be victorious in the challenges we face.
