KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

Telling the truth is a pretty hard thing.

~ Thomas Wolfe ~

Often, we get scared to tell the truth. We wonder, “What will happen? Will I get in trouble? Will someone be mad at me?’” These things could happen. But good things could happen too. Sometimes we want to lie.

We don’t want anyone mad at us or unhappy with us. We want people off our back. So we lie. And it comes back to haunt us. We must believe that the best will happen in the long run if we tell the truth. Our program tells us that we can stay sober if we’re honest. Telling the truth takes faith. We must have faint in the program. We must be honest. Our sobriety and our life depend on it.

Prayer for the Day:

Higher Power, help me remember that I’m doing things Your way when I tell the truth.

Action for the Day:

I will think about what I say today. I will be as honest as I can be.
