Here are a few things you probably didn’t know.
Doritos were invented at Disneyland. The U.S. is visited by more missionaries than any other country. The word “hundred” used to mean 120. Buzz Aldrin’s father was friends with Orville Wright. At a food safety conference in Baltimore in 2014, 100 attendees got food poisoning. The button was invented 1,000 years before the buttonhole. Waitresses earn more money in tips when they wear red lipstick. Martin Luther King, Jr. got a C+ in public speaking.
I share those facts for two reasons: (a) I find them interesting, and (b) they remind us that we all have things that we do not know.
Let’s shift to the subject of recovery. I bet there are some things you don’t know about recovery. And you know what? I’m not going to tell you. Sometimes, the blessing is in the journey. So here’s my challenge – learn something new about recovery today that you didn’t know yesterday. Then apply what you learn.
Recovery Step: The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Learn something new today, but in the process, never forget the wisdom of God.
