Keep it Simple

We not only need to be willing to give, but also to be open to receiving from others.—from On Hope…

Many of us took so much from others during our addiction that now we may not want to ask for anything. We may be afraid to ask for help, so our needs go unmet. In fact, many of us would rather give than receive. In recovery, we need to understand the difference between taking and receiving. Giving to others is important. So is receiving from others. As we grow spiritually, we learn to accept gifts. The gift of sobriety teaches us this. We need to accept the gifts the world gives us without shame. We are entitled. God loves us and will give us much if we’re willing to receive it.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me be receptive to Your gifts. Help me see and believe that I’m entitled to all the happiness of the world.
Action for the Day:  I’ll think of what a friend has given me. I’ll thank this friend.
