What impresses us most at an A.A. meeting is the willingness
to share, without holding anything back. And pretty soon we
find ourselves sharing also. We start telling our own
experiences and by so doing we help the other person. And
when we’ve got these things off our chest, we feel a lot
better. It does us a lot of good to share with some other
poor unfortunate person who’s in the same box that we were
in. And the more we share, the more we have left for ourselves.
Do I know that the more I share, the better chance I’ll have
to stay sober?
Meditation For The Day
Constantly claim God’s strength. Once convinced of the right
of a course of action, once reasonably sure of God’s guidance,
claim that strength now. You can claim all the strength you
need to meet any situation. You can claim a new supply when
your own supply is exhausted. You have a right to claim it and
you should use your right. A beggar supplicates, a child
appropriates. When you supplicate, you are often kept waiting,
but when you appropriate God’s strength in a good cause, you
have it at once.
Prayer For The Day
I pray that I may claim God’s strength whenever I need it. I
pray that I may try to live as a child of God.
