AA Thought for the Day:

If we had absolute faith in the power of God to keep us from drinking and if we turned our drinking problem entirely over to God without reservations, we wouldn’t have to do anything more about it. We’d be free from drink once and for all. But since our faith is apt to be weak, we have to strengthen and build up this faith. We do this in several ways. One way is by going to meetings and listening to others tell how they have found all the strength they need to overcome drink. Is my faith being strengthened by this personal witness of other alcoholics?

Meditation for the Day:

It is the quality of my life that determines its value. In order to judge the value of a person’s life, we must set up a standard. The most valuable life is one of honesty, purity, unselfishness, and love. All people’s lives ought to be judged by this standard in determining their value to the world. By this standard, most of the so-called heroes of history were not great humans. “What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Prayer for the Day:

I pray that I may be honest, pure, unselfish, and loving. I pray that I may make the quality of my life good by these standards.
