THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
This program has no quarrel with medicine, psychiatry, or religion. We have great respect for the methods of each. And we are glad for any success they may have had with any of us. We are desirous always of cooperating with them in every way. The more doctors, the more psychiatrists, the more clergy and rabbis we can get to work with us, the better we like it. We have many who take a real interest in our program, and we would like many more. Am I ready to cooperate with those who take a sincere interest in this program?
MEDITATION FOR THE DAY
God is always ready to pour blessings into our hearts in generous measure. But like the seed-sowing, the ground must be prepared before the seed is dropped in. It is our task to prepare the soil. It is God’s role to drop in the seed. This preparation of the soil means many days of right living, choosing the right way and avoiding the wrong. As you go along, each day you are better prepared for God’s planting, until you reach the time of harvest. Then you share the harvest with God the harvest of a useful and abundant life.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
I pray that my way of living may be properly prepared day by day. I pray that I may strive to make myself ready for the harvest that God has planted in my heart.
