    MARCH 17 Reflection for the Day

    “Lead us not into temptation,” we pray, for we know with certainty that temptation lurks around the corner. Temptation is cunning, baffling, powerful – and patient; we never know when it will catch us with our guard down. Temptation could come in the siren song of a four-color advertisement or a radio commercial, the neon and noise of a casino, or, more obviously, in the direct urgings of another person. We must remain forever vigilant, remembering that the first bet, the first face-off with a gambling machine, the first roll of the dice could well destroy our lives.

    Am I aware of my number one priority?

    Today I Pray
    God, lead me out of temptation – whether it is the sound of rattling dice, the turn of a card at a poker party, the smoke of the Bingo hall. May I know the limits of my resistance and stay well within them. May my surrender to the will of God give a whole new meaning to that old phrase, “Get in the spirit.”

    Today I Will Remember
    Get in the spirit.
