Share with your friends on Facebook


The first is WAKE UP. Begin the day with the Lord. It is the Lord’s day. Rejoice in it.

The second is DRESS-UP. Put on a smile. It improves your looks. It says something about your attitude.

The third is SHUT-UP. Watch your tongue. Don’t gossip. Say nice things. Learn to listen.

The fourth is STAND-UP. Take a stand for what you believe. Resist evil. Do good.

Five, LOOK-UP. Lift your head up from your smart phone. Open your eyes to the Lord. After all, the Lord is your only Savior.

Six, REACH-UP. Spend time in prayer with your Bible, Lectio Divina, thanksgivings and supplications to the Lord.

And finally, LIFT-UP. Be available to help those in need by serving, supporting and sharing.

The New Year reminds us that time is passing. It is up to each of us to maximize the potential of each and every moment.
