... growth is related directly to our success in looking at and releasing our history. Like barnacles on a ship's hull, our past wrongdoings can prevent us from sailing smoothly to a life fulfilled with peace.

Stumbling Blocks or Stepping Stones

So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.
(Romans 14:12-13 (NIV) in Daily Guideposts - 2013, 9 March)

Pick Your Battles

Pick your battles wisely. 
Don't quibble over things that don't really matter. 
We have enough big issues in life with which to deal.

Sit Quietly

I sit quietly and allow my thoughts to pass. I imagine that I am a calm lake. I allow disturbing thoughts to drift away like clouds across the sky. I allow comfort and peace to surround and penetrate my body.

I will concentrate on the things that are my concern -- and make sure which are really mine. I will keep hands off the business of others. I will not interfere with ... [their] activities, assume ... [their]
responsibilities or shield ... [them] from the consequences of what ... [they do or fail to do].
