O.L.G.A. Thought for the Day
Compulsive gaming is a progressive illness. We go through the three stages of social gaming, trouble gaming, and merry-go-round gaming. We land in therapists offices. We can eventually lose our homes, our families, our self-respect and our real lives. Yes, compulsive gaming is a progressive illness and there are only three ends to it -- the insane asylum, the morgue, or abstinence. Will I choose not to play that first game? If you don't think you can end up in the morgue, I would like to see a study done on all suicides for the past 5 years, and see how many of those people were addicted gamers.
Meditation for the Day
You not only can live a new life but you also can grow in grace and power and beauty. Reach ever forward and upward after the things of the spirit. In the animal world, the very form of an animal changes to enable it to reach that upon which it delights to feed. Your whole character changes as you reach upward for the things of the spirit -- for beauty, for love, for honesty, for purity, and for unselfishness. Reaching after these things of the spirit, your whole nature becomes changed so that you can best receive and delight in the wonders of the abundant life.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may reach forward and upward. I pray that my character may be changed by this reaching upward for the things of the spirit.
