    June 26 Reflection for the Day

    How many of us would presume to announce, “Well, I’m on my way to licking the gambling habit. What more can I want, or do? I’m fine just the way I am.” Experience has taught us that the price of such smug complacency – or, more politely, self-satisfaction – is an inevitable backslide, punctuated sooner or later by a very rude awakening. We have to grow, or else we deteriorate. For us, the status quo can only be for today, never for tomorrow. Change we must; we can’t stand still.

    Am I sometimes tempted to rest on my laurels?

    Today I Pray
    May I look around me and see that all living things are either growing or deteriorating; nothing that is alive is static. Life flows on. May I be carried along on that life-flow, unafraid of change, disengaging myself from the snags along the way that hold me back and interrupt my progress.

    Today I Will Remember
    Living is changing.
