Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

LANGUAGE


“If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”

— George Orwell

Sobriety for me means much more than “not drinking” or “not using” — it means the daily decision to be a positive and creative human being in all areas of my life: How I treat people. What I eat. The books I read and how I speak! Not even my worst enemy would call me a “prude” but I think that bad language used on a regular basis is unacceptable in sobriety. Why? Because it hurts the listener and does not show respect for self or the God-given gift of communication.

If you have no respect for language, you will ultimately not grow as a spiritual person.
May Your “words of love” be reflected in my speech and writings.
