It’s very important to keep in a grateful frame of mind, if we want to
stay sober. We should be grateful that we’re living in a day and age
when alcoholics aren’t treated as they often used to be treated before
Alcoholics Anonymous was started. In the old days, every town had its
town drunk who was regarded with scorn and ridiculed by the rest of
the townspeople. We have come into A.A. and found all the sympathy,
understanding, and fellowship that we could ask for. There’s no other
group like A.A. in the world. Am I grateful?
Meditation For The Day
God takes our efforts for good and blesses them. God needs our efforts.
We need God’s blessing. Together, they mean spiritual success. Our
efforts are necessary. We cannot merely relax and drift with the tide.
We must often direct our efforts against the tide of materialism around
us. When difficulties come, our efforts are needed to surmount them. But
God directs our efforts into the right channels and God’s power is
necessary to help us choose the right.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may choose the right. I pray that I may have God’s blessing
and direction in all my efforts for good.
