40-Day Challenge: Wisdom (Day 36)

Begin with the Prayer of Abandonment.

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.
The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.

Lin Yutang, author and inventor of the Chinese typewriter

Today’s Challenge:  Time to take personal inventory:  Are there any areas of your life in which the good has become the enemy of the best?  What “non-essentials” do you need to eliminate in order to make room for that which is of ultimate importance?

Today’s Prayer:  Create in me a heart of generous wisdom, O God.
