Lesson #20 – DAILY INVENTORY
There is just something about putting thoughts down on paper that is unlike sharing them in conversation or simply thinking them through. When we put pen to paper & start asking ourselves thoughtful questions about our life &, more specifically, about each day, we can begin to see patterns–both good & bad–that are forming, track growth that is taking place, & determine areas that need our attention & possibly more accountability.
Our daily inventory should consist of both the high & low points of our day, including our successes & also those times when we may have blown it or dropped the ball. The “Great Commandment” in Matthew 22:37-40, Jesus says, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul and…mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” By putting our Celebrate Recovery principles & steps into action, we try to follow these two commandments. And by keeping our daily inventory, we can better ensure that our actions are consistent with our words &, more importantly, that they are consistent with God’s word.
Principle 7: Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” 1 Corinthians 10:12
