A DAY AT A TIME #essentialsofrec #Humility #BillW


Reflection for the Day
What is the definition of humility? “Absolute humility/’ said A A co-founder Bill W., “would consist of a state of complete freedom from myself, freedom from all the claims that my defects of character now lay so heavily upon me. Perfect humility would be a full willing-ness, in all times and places, to find and to do the will of God.” Am I striving for humility?

Today I Pray
May God expand my interpretation of humility beyond abject subservience or awe at the greatness of others. May humility also mean freedom from myself, a freedom which can come only through turning my being over to God’s will. May I sense the omnipotence of God, which is simultaneously humbling and exhilarating. May I be willing to carry out God’s will.

Today I Will Remember
Humility is freedom.
