STOP AND THINK – Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man. (Benjamin Franklin, a founding father of the USA)

Well, did yesterday find you a better person than you were in 2013? If not, now is the earliest date you can begin to change things so that on January 1, 2015, you will be a better person. What will it take to improve? Better intentions? Perseverance? Higher goals? How about seeking a trusted friend who can work with you for the improvement of both of you?

The pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. (Proverbs 27:9)
