KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Money costs too much.

~ Ross MacDonald ~

Many people are poor and really need money to live better lives. But we’re in trouble if we think money will solve all our problems. If money solved all problems, all rich people would be happy.

Consider this: A man talks about his short-comings in a Twelve Step meeting. He says his main shortcoming is to think being happy means having enough money. But then he says that he has over a million dollars!

This man is lucky—not because he has money, but because he knows greed is a shortcoming. He knows he has a spiritual problem. He doesn’t need money; he needs faith in a Higher Power.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me to really believe I’ll be given what I need. This will free me to get on with life.

Action for the Day Today

I’ll read over the promises of the program. They are found at the bottom of page 83 and at the top of page 84 in the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous, Third Edition.
