Keep It Simple

The only way to speak truth is to speak lovingly. —Thoreau—
Recovery teaches us to tell the truth. We must be honest if we want to save our lives. We must learn to speak with care—care for ourselves and for others. To be honest means to speak in a fair and truthful way. To be honest and loving means learning when to speak, and how to speak, in a caring way. We can help others by honestly telling them what we think and feel and see—but only when we do this with love. We must be careful when we speak. Speaking the truth is like using a sharp knife—it can be used for good, or it can be used to hurt others. We should never handle it carelessly of use it to hurt someone.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me know the truth. Help me speak the truth to others with love.
Action for the Day:  I’ll make a list of three times I’ve hurt someone be being honest, but not with love. I’ll also list three times I’ve helped someone by being truthful, with love.
