...With New Beginnings

In the Bible is a story about God destroying a wicked city, but, being merciful, He warns the righteous to leave before it is destroyed. One righteous family being that of Lot. However, as Lot's family is leaving the city of Sodom he is told "look not behind thee...lest thou be consumed." (Genesis 19:17)

Later, as the family was leaving the city, God sent brimstone and fire out of heaven destroying the wicked. Then, longing for the joys of the past, Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

We all make mistakes. We all need a new beginning. Tomorrow starts today. We have a bright future ahead of us. It's the beginning of a new year. Now is the time to look forward and make new goals. "look not behind thee." The best is yet to come.

New Year's: Look not Behind Thee
