Now that we are two months into the new year, how many New Year’s resolutions are you maintaining? Perhaps you’ve slipped, or maybe you are diligently staying focused on achieving those goals for 2016. Ephesians 4:22-24 reminds us to “put off” our old selves, which belongs to our former manner of life, and to be “renewed in the spirit” of our minds, to put on the “new self” created after the likeness of God in “true righteousness and holiness.” Our blog topic today for MBU Timeline writers delves into this scripture and examines the question: What does this scripture mean to you and how can you apply this to any goals or resolutions you’ve established for this year?

The largest Powerball jackpot in history climbed to $1.6 billion — that’s BILLION — before three winning tickets produced the magic numbers recently, in California, Tennessee and Florida. Each winner will walk away with more than $330 million after taxes. In an instant lives are changed, bank accounts will soar, wildest dreams will be realized and, undoubtedly, problems will arise. One couple sharing a winning ticket, from Tennessee, has come forward, but the other two winners remain in hiding, no doubt getting their financial affairs in order before claiming more money than they could ever imagine. So we’ve asked MBU Timeline writers to blog about what they would do with that kind of money, this unimaginable wealth that has us all pondering, wishing … perhaps hoping. And we have also sent reporters out across campus to ask faculty, staff and students the same question: What would you do with all that money?
