WHAT TO GIVE UP THIS YEAR!
Give up grumbling. Instead, “In everything give thanks”
Give up 10-15 minutes in bed. Instead, use that time in prayer.
Give up speaking unkindly. Instead, let your speech be generous and
Give up looking at other people’s worst points. Instead, concentrate on
Give up your worries. Instead, trust God with them.
Give up hatred or dislike of anyone. Instead, learn to love.
Give up the fear which prevents Christian witness. Instead, seek courage
speak of your faith to others.
Give up spending so much time with newspapers and magazines. Instead, use
some of that time reading and studying your Bible.
Give up television one evening a week. Instead, visit some lonely or sick
Give up buying anything but essentials for yourself. Instead, give that
God’s work or someone in need.
Give up judging by appearance and by the standards of the world. Instead,
to give up yourself to God.
