Daily Reflections - OCTOBER 13

Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and  fear.  When  these  crop  up,  we ask  God  at  once  to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to someone we can help.

The immediate admission of wrong thoughts or actions is a tough task for most human beings, but for recovering alcoholics like me it is difficult because of my propensity toward ego, fear and pride. The freedom the A.A. program offers  me  becomes  more  abundant  when,  through unremitting  inventories  of myself,  I admit,  acknowledge and accept responsibility for my wrong-doing. It is possible then for me to grow into a deeper and better understanding of humility. My willingness to admit when the fault is mine facilitates the progression of my growth and helps me to become more understanding and helpful to others.
