Make It A Good Year

James Boyd

We do not publish this booklet according to certain dates but somewhat as Galatians 6: 10 suggests, "As we have therefore opportunity.." Therefore we cannot know just which issue may come at what time of the year. But we publish around twelve to fourteen issues each year. This one just happens to come near the first of a new year, the year 1988.

The beginning of the year is usually a time for JAMES W BOYD "taking stock" and making plans. This year is no . exception, even along with certain resolutions many make about one thing or another. While we really do not place much emphasis on resolutions at the first of the year, it is a good idea to review our intentions and purposes in life. Self-examination, one of the more difficult ones to take and be objective, is of great benefit. We are encouraged in Scripture to do this several times.

It is our hope and prayer that 1988 will be a good year for the cause of Christ and that each one will renew his or her efforts to be what the Lord wants us to be. The world, our youth and our brethren need us to be faithful Christians. This we can do if we set our mind to the task.
