There are eleven full days left in 2020 before the new year begins. I have seen dozens of memes making fun of the past year and are showing our excitement for the calendar’s turning. With a new year comes new experiences, adventures, and opportunities.
Before we rush into 2021, don’t let these days slip by you without using them. Paul told the believers in the city of Ephesus, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity …” (Ephesians 5:15-16). Believers are people who make the most of EVERY opportunity. We pour our hearts and souls into each day.
These coming eleven days are full of opportunities to use your life for God’s kingdom and to love your neighbors as God desires. I might even argue that there will be even more chances for us to make an impact for God on this world with the Christmas and New Years’ season.
So, before you share that funny meme about the end of the year or your excitement for the new year, stop and think about all the good you can still do this year. People are hoping for a better 2021, but maybe you could surprise them with a wonderful ending to 2020.
