        1. What were the seeds that started to affect your moderation today?
        2. Is there an area where you struggle with moderation (clothing, technology, learning, trinkets, food, alcohol, etc..)? Do you have a plan to curb your habits?
        3. Think of how you used the resources around you. Did you squander them, or were you excessive in their use?
        4. If you were on the verge of being excessive, what did you employ that helped you curb this behavior?
        5. Were you able to use prayer or meditation to help in your struggle with moderation?
        6. What do you struggle to practice in moderation?   Food, drink, study, work?   Discuss…
        7. Do you have a tendency towards asceticism (self-denial)?
