If you are reading this article today, God has blessed you to see another year. God has given you another opportunity to do something worthwhile. I am convinced that many have made their New Year's resolutions. I want you to know that I am not a big advocate of making resolutions. Many times, they only last a few months and sometimes, a few days.

A few days ago I saw a television commercial where Bo and Luke Duke were brought back from the "Dukes of Hazzard" to promote some product. Once again they were in "The General" outrunning the law.
