Our Folded Hands

Keeping it Simple

When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that three of his fingers are pointing at himself. —Louis Nizer—
It’s so easy to blame others. Others are always making mistakes we can hide behind. That’s what blame is—hiding. When we blame others for our mistakes, we’re trying to hide our character defects.
It’s nobody else’s fault that we act the way we do. It’s our fault. We’re responsible for our actions.
And with the help of our Higher Power, we can change. We can turn over our character defects. Over time, we’re not afraid to learn about ourselves—even the parts we don’t like—because we want to know ourselves better.
Prayer for the Day:  I pray for help in facing my character defects.
Action for the Day:  I’ll think about the past week. I’ll list times I’ve used blame to hide from reality.
