My Laundry List

Let's stop for a few minutes on this long journey we've been on. Let's reflect on how far we have come. Since January, we have:

That is quite a list, isn't it? Well, we are just a little more than half way through our journey together. August lands us in the 8th month and that means we have come to Step 8 of our recovery journey. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done! We have come so far in this journey together! Let's dig into our next step and keep moving forward!

Step 8 says we are to make a list of all the people we have harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. By working through my inventory, I have a laundry list of people who have harmed me and of people I have harmed. As a result of my controlling tendencies, my co-dependent behavior, and my shopping addiction, I have hurt many people without realizing it at the time.

In Luke 6:31, Jesus is speaking to a crowd of disciples. This is Luke's interpretation of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Jesus is presenting how people should behave in order to live a "blessed" life. I view this, personally, as Jesus explaining how to live a life with the Kingdom of Heaven in mind. Jesus tells us to love, do good deeds, be generous, pray, be merciful, non-judgmental, just to name a few. Many refer to Luke 6:31 as the Golden Rule.
