Keep It Simple

An honest man’s the noblest work of God.

-Alexander Pope

Step five says, “Admitted to God, to ourselves, and another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.” When we did this Step, the person we admitted our wrongs to didn’t run away or reject us. That person stuck with us. Chances are, we were told that we are quite human. And working Step Five helped us to see that we can change, now that we’re sober.

The most important part of Step five is the act of being totally honest about ourselves. Then we know that relationships–with our Higher Power, ourselves, and others–can be built. We have faced the truth. Now we know we never have to lie.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, I know no Fifth Step is perfect. Please help me be as honest as I can in doing my Fifth Step and at other times.

Action for the Day: If I’ve avoided doing a Fifth Step, I’ll talk to my sponsor about it today.
