FROM THE PULPIT: Resolutions are about making choices

Published: Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 11:32 AM.

But resolutions address an aspect about ourselves that needs to be changed — and change is difficult.

For change to occur, there must be a full-fledged commitment to making it happen. The mindset must be “I must — and I will — do this!”

If it is approached with a “wouldn’t it be nice” frame of mind, the change will be short-lived.

Part of what it comes down to is making choices.

Will desired new healthy patterns continue to be chosen over old destructive patterns?

Will the choice be made to persevere through old habits’ lure?
