Anyone who follows a middle course is called a sage. — Maimonides—
Much of the wisdom of our program is about how to live in the middle. We learn how to pause and think before we act. We ask,
“What is the best way to handle this?” We look for the smooth part of the road. Our actions tell us who we are. We listen to our actions, and we think about them. This listening and thinking takes time. This slows us down. It’s good for us. It gives us time to talk with our Higher Power. After all, we want our actions to come from the new values our Higher Power has given us. Thus, over time we act and feel wiser. The wisdom of the program becomes part of who we are.
Prayer for the Day: I pray that I I don’t get caught up in the rush of the day. Higher Power, teach me to stop and think, to seek Your wisdom.
Action for the Day: Today, I’ll set aside time to think, meditate, and be alone. I will listen to what’s inside me.
