An Anti-Resolution

I'm not big on New Years Resolutions. I don't believe that waiting until the beginning of another year is a good reference for looking to make improvement in your life. Most of the time resolving to do something is more about 'me' than 'others'. I need to lose weight, I need to have better habits or stop the habits I already have. Notice the "I" factor. Inward focused.
I'm trying to change my perspective to be more externally focused. What is God teaching? What does that person need?
Jesus showed us servant leadership when he washed his disciples feet. Not necessarily a pleasant task. Ever notice that the 'best life' is typically counter cultural to what the world would deem great living?
John 10:10 - "I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of." (the message)
