TODAY I will not strike back . . .
If someone is rude, if someone is impatient, if someone is unkind, I will not respond in a like manner.
TODAY I will ask God to bless my ‘enemy’ . . .
If I come across someone who treats me harshly or unfairly, I will quietly ask God to bless that individual. I understand ‘enemy’ could be a family member, neighbor, co-worker or stranger.
TODAY I will be careful about what I say . . .
I will carefully choose and guard my words being certain that I do not spread gossip.
TODAY I will do something kind for someone (But I will do it in secret) . . .
I will reach out anonymously and bless the life of another.
TODAY I will treat others the way I wish to be treated . . .
I will practice the golden rule, “Do unto others as I would have them do unto me,” with EVERYONE I encounter.
TODAY I will raise the spirits of some who are discouraged . . .
My smile, my words, my expression of support, can make the difference to someone who is wrestling with life.
TODAY I will nurture my body . . .
I will eat less. I will eat only healthy foods. I will thank God for my body.
TODAY I will grow spiritually . . .
I will spend a little more time on prayer today. I will begin reading something spiritual or inspirational. I will find a quiet place (at some point during this day) and listen to God’s voice.
