Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


VALUES


“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
–Charles Darwin

Life is not to be wasted. Time is not to be wasted. Friends, relationships, opportunities are not to be wasted. Why? Because as vulnerable human beings we do not have the ultimate control of our lives and none of us know when our lives will end, when we shall die, when time and opportunity will be no more! Life is too precious to waste.

During my years as an addict I did not value my life. I did not value time. I did not value friends and relationships. Nothing was valued except the alcohol! Life was meaningless. God was absent and I felt nothing – just a “dullness” at the center of my being. Today this is not the case. Through my pain I have found the value of life and I have discovered a God as I understand Him.

God, let me value what I have while I have it.
