I hope that in the year to come you make mistakes… (Neil Gaiman, English author)

That’s not a good New Year’s blessing, is it? Hear Gaiman out: “because if you are making mistakes you are making new things, learning, living, pushing  yourself, changing yourself, changing the world.” Now that puts it in a more positive light, doesn’t it? Mistakes are inevitable, so expect them and try to learn from them. It will make for a better New Year.

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. (Ephesians 4:2)

As you go into the new year, make sure to purchase yourself a copy of the book God of Hope to help you get through our mistakes.
