It'll be just a quick one this morning, I've got to get on the road early. The three chambers of commerce in our county put on a monthly leadership class where we go around the county and tour various agencies, companies, services, etc to learn more about what goes on in the county. Class members start each year in Sept and "graduate" in June. This year we've got 14 class members and today we're touring four different manufacturing facilities, and we have a panel of economic development professionals leading a discussion at lunchtime. It should be an interesting day.
It occurs to me in my study of Steps 6 and 7 that if I wish to be free of my defects of character/shortcomings (that is, to have God remove them), I need to stop doing them first. For instance, I can't very well stop using vulgar language if I am using vulgar language. So, that's my message for today, if you want to grow and get rid of some objectionable behaviour, try stopping it :-) (I) Ask God for help each day in removing your (my) obsession for addictive or inappropriate behaviour and He will in His time. In the mean time, behave well. (oh, and did I mention that the practice of Steps 6 and 7 are also a "one day at a time" thing?)
have an awesome Thursday!
