As many people reckon time, a new year — 2017 — has just broken. [See: "Happy New Year!"] For many, this also is a time to make “New Year’s resolutions,” a time to change – usually for the better. But, as many ruefully find out while the days, weeks and months roll by, those resolutions are soon forgotten and fall by the wayside. “Maybe next year again?” they console themselves.
Why do men need to change, whereas God says, “I do not change” (Malachi 3:6)? Just what does God mean by that?
