TRUST



“Men become civilized, not in proportion to their willingness to believe, but in their readiness to doubt.”— H. L. Mencken

A civilized nation is essentially a spiritual nation. A civilized person is one who seeks the truth and is willing to grow with change.

Sobriety is adventuresome because it is bigger than simply “not drinking”; it seeks to address all areas of life and all situations. An example is trust. When I was drinking, I trusted no one because I felt that everybody was like me out for themselves! Today I know that the real enemy in my life is me; I am the one who brings pain into my life. I am beginning to love myself by my decision not to drink. I can trust today. I am beginning to trust myself and others.

O God, who trusted man with freedom, help me to freely trust.
