A.A. Today: Honesty and Humility

wp-1485821892780.jpgAA Today are daily readings from the book “Twenty-Four Hours A Day.”

“Twenty-Four Hours A Day is intended for members of Alcoholics Anonymous as a help in their program of living one day at a time.

It is designed for those who want to start each day with a few minutes of thought, meditation, and prayer.”

By drinking, we escaped from boredom for a while.  We almost forgot our troubles.  But when we sobered up, our troubles were twice as bad.  Drinking had only made them worse.  In A.A. we really escape boredom.  Nobody’s bored at an A.A. meeting.

We stick around after it’s over and we hate to leave.  Drinking gave us a temporary feeling of importance.  When we’re drinking, we kid ourselves into thinking we are somebody.  We tell tall stories to build ourselves up.  In A.A. we don’t want that kind of self-importance.  We have real self-respect and honesty and humility.  Have I found something much better and more satisfactory than drinking?

Meditation for the Day

I believe that my faith and God’s power can accomplish anything in human relationships.  There is no limit to what these two things can do in this field.  Only believe, and anything can happen.  Saint Paul said, “I can do all things through Him who strengthenenth me.”  All walls that divide you from other human beings can fall by your faith and God’s power.  These are the two essentials.  Everyone can be moved by these.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may try to strengthen my faith day by day.  I pray that I may rely more and more on God’s power.

  1. Love this Rob! I had a friend who is on my daily Bible verse list. When he’d get deployed, he would leave me his AA daily book so I could type up the daily story, meditation and prayer, and email them to him. I’ve missed these. They always made me so happy.
