Daily Inspiration - April 30

We must convince by reason, not prescribe by tradition.  Cyprain

Tradition is what we pass down from generation to generation.  We are expected to carry on family tradition.  Just as our parents and grandparents did. The problem is, we are not the same people as they are.  Life is different from the way it was thirty, twenty, or even ten years ago.  Just because this is "the way it has always been done," is no reason that it should continue to be done that way.  You have the right to challenge "tradition," to look at events through your own set of values and talents.  Tradition is important for some events in our life, but, our day-to-day life should be determined by our own logic and ability to identify our needs and priorities.
