I write all the time.

Sermons. Poems. Blog posts.

Always writing.

And because I wrote so much, I am constantly editing. I’m always looking for things that I need to delete or add in to make whatever I’m working on better.

It’s not the funnest part of writing, but it’s probably the most important.

The last thing I want to do is put something out there that is flawed. (Plus it’s really embarrassing when someone messages you to say that you messed up.)


I’ll spend a few extra minutes to look over things before I publish them.

Which makes me wonder…

Why don’t we do the same right now?

A New Year is upon us.

And with that we have the opportunity to start fresh. We have the opportunity to edit our lives.

We can delete the things that are unimportant.


We can add in things that enhance them.

Regardless of what we need to do; now is the perfect time to edit.

So will you be doing some editing?
