I always like to start my New Year's Resolutions on Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year celebration started on the new moon (January 23 this year) and is a 15 day celebration ending with the Lantern Festival on the full moon.
I read this passage a few weeks ago, and have been pondering their implication in my life.
Saint Paul always gives great advice.
In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
Do not quench the Spirit.
Do not despise prophetic utterances.
Test everything; retain what is good.
Refrain from every kind of evil.
(2 Thessalonians 5:16-22)
Let's see how I make out for 2012.
