Focus Drill Idea for 12/24/14
Catholic guys should spend 30 minutes in focused thought to start their day. Non Catholics should too. Here are some suggestions.
Meditate on Sacred Scripture:
Situational Response. Eliminate any persons from the scenario who do not apply to your family.
◾You are at an office party
◾Your spouse and children are at the movies
◾A co-worker says he/she has a room at the host hotel and invites you up for drinks
◾What is your response?
◾Now what do you do?
Hey. I didn’t say every scenario would be about survival situations. You need a game plan and general course of action for situations like this too because men and women are put in near occasions of sexual sin often. When a temptation arises, we are always better off having a game plan.
By the way, the best rule of thumb in situations like this is to politely excuse yourself. “No. I really should be heading back. It’s my night to read to the kids.” It’s not perfect, but I think it works better than running out of the room screaming. However, if that works for you, be my guest.
