Twenty-Four Hours A Day

A.A. Thought For The Day

In A.A. we often hear the slogan “Easy Does It.” Alcoholics

always do everything to excess. They drink too much. They

worry too much. They have too many resentments. They hurt

themselves physically and mentally by too much of everything.

So when they come into A.A., they have to learn to take it

easy. None of us knows how much longer we have to live. Its

probable that we wouldn’t have lived very long if we had

continued to drink the way we used to. By stopping drinking,

we have increased our chances of living for a while longer.

Have I learned to take it easy?

Meditation For The Day

You must be before you can do. To accomplish much, be much.

In all cases, the doing must be the expression of the being.

It is foolish to think that we can accomplish much in personal

relationships without first preparing ourselves by being honest,

pure, unselfish, and loving. We must choose the good and keep

choosing it, before we are ready to be used by God to accomplish

anything worthwhile. We will not be given the opportunities

until we are ready for them. Quiet times of communion with the

Higher Power are good preparation for creative action.

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may constantly prepare myself for better things

to come. I pray that I may only have opportunities when I am

ready for them.
