It's Christmas time again and that means parents all around the church are struggling with one question, "Should we buy in to the culture and teach our children that Santa is a real person?"
Some have a conscience problem with doing so because it is telling a young impressionable soul something that isn't true. Others have no qualms about doing so because it is a fairy tale like Jake and the Neverland Pirates or Queen Elsa of Aarondale. But whatever your stance on the matter, I'm convinced of one crucial thing.
That is NOT the biggest lie you can be telling your children, and yourselves, this time of year!
No, there is a lie that is much more devastating to your soul and reputation during the waining months of the year.
That lie? It goes like this, "January first I am going to start _______!" Also known as a New Year's Resolution.

RIGHT NOW!! - Go!
