Who Can You Change?

222. Who Can You Change?

Good question. Do you have the answer?

You know the Serenity Prayer that is used a lot in Alcoholics Anonymous groups? It goes like this: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. That prayer was originally written by 20th century theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. It’s a good prayer.

But a couple of years ago I heard another version that I thought was even better and effectively answers the question above. The other version is: God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the person I can, and the wisdom to know that that person is me.

And to that I say Amen.
