Definition of COVENANT

1 : a usually formal, solemn, and binding agreement :

Instead  of a New Year's Resolution, this year I am doing a New Year's Covenant. It is to work on becoming the man described below...

If anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God's steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.  He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
Titus 1:6-9 ESV

…Be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.  He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive
1 Timothy 3:2-4 ESV

Feel free to hold me to this, if you see me not holding up my end of it.
