The New Year stands before us like an open door to an unknown land. What will be waiting for us after we cross the threshold? How will we know what paths we should take and what paths we should avoid? What decisions will we face, and how will we discern the right way? Psalm 25:9 reads: “The meek will He guide in judgment, and the meek will He teach His way.” Ah, here we have it: going to God in true humility, understanding that we have and are nothing and that God is all Wisdom. As the minute hand sweeps around the clock face, bringing us closer and closer to the threshold of the unknown, may our fervent prayer and desire be to walk in meekness in 2017.
