Order is heaven’s first law.—Alexander Pope—
We need order in our lives. It makes life simpler for us. Life without order would be like driving in a large city
without traffic signals. Our lives as addicts were like this. We lived with no plan, no order.
Now that we’re sober, we can put some order in our lives. We can get up every morning. We can make our beds
and be on time for work. These things make life so much easier and nicer. we need this order. It allows us to depend on ourselves.
We now look at the Twelve Steps to bring order to our lives. The Steps follow each other as summer follows spring. Do I allow myself to follow the natural order or do I fight it?
Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, You’ve put order in this world. Please put order in my life. Let me flow within this order instead of being on my own.
Action for the Day: The Twelve Steps have a natural order. Today I’ll take time to read each Step and think about the order found in them.
