I’ve noticed that the ones who do the most for A.A. are not
in the habit of boasting about it. The danger of building
myself up too much is that, if I do, I’m in danger of having
a fall. That pattern of thought goes with drinking. If one
side of a boat gets too far up out of the water, it’s liable
to tip over. Building myself up and drinking go together.
One leads to the other. So if I’m going to stay sober, I’ve
got to keep small. Have I got the right perspective on myself?
Meditation For The Day
The way sometimes seems long and weary. So many people today
are weary. The weariness of others must often be shared by me.
The weary and the heavy laden, when they come to me, should
be helped to find the rest that I have found. There is only
one sure cure for world-weariness and that is turning to
spiritual things. In order to help bring about the turning
of the weary world to God, I must dare to suffer, dare to
conquer selfishness in myself, and dare to be filled with
spiritual peace in the face of all the weariness of the
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may be a help to discouraged people. I pray
that I may have the courage to help bring about what the
weary world needs but does not know how to get.
