If a donkey is stubborn and obstinate, with self-will run riot, and you load it up with precious cargo, will the donkey be any less stubborn, obstinate and self-willed? NO. So it is with us. We have the precious cargo of our gifts and talents, but that does not make us necessarily change for the better if we only focus on our pluses. We have to do a daily inventory of our shortcomings, so that we can see where we need to continue to work to become better people. We all know people who are very talented but at the same time, they can be real jerks. Not us of course. We don’t have to focus all day on the negatives in our personality but an examination of conscience in the evening and thinking about our faults for a moment in the morning can go a long way to making everyone’s life better.
