KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

We must all hang together or we will hang separately.

~ Ben Franklin ~

We didn’t get ourselves sober. And we don’t keep ourselves sober. Our program does this. That is why the Twelfth Step is important. We must be willing to give service to our program whenever it’s needed. When a friend calls and say he or she feels like using, we don’t say we’re sorry. We get our friend and take him or her to a meeting. Our survival depends on this kind of action.

We are to carry the message. We carry the message by deeds, not words. We are part of a fellowship based on action. A fellowship guided by love. It is not words that keep us sober—it is action.

Prayer for theDay: 

Higher Power, help me be ready whenever there’s a need. Help me be ready to put my self-will aside. Give me strength.

Action for the Day:

I will think of my group members. Who could use a supportive call or visit? I will call or visit those who need my help.
