This day is God’s. It is my gift to Him.
What do we really know? Do we know what is best for us? Hardly. How many times have our choices steered us wrong and later we regretted what we have decided. One of the hallmarks of a spiritual life is to recognize and acknowledge how often we’ve been wrong. The need to be right is the work of the ego.
In Alcoholic Anonymous, participants are encouraged to give up their willfulness for willingness, to turn their willfulness over to their Higher Power.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which takes us to the place where we turn our will over to the Holy Spirit, the Muse, our Intuitive Wisdom.
Today, we should ask ourselves several times throughout the day, “What would Love have me do?” When we do this, it is our gift to God.
