AA Thought for the Day

September 7, 2017


Motives
This odd trait of mind and emotion, this perverse wish to hide a bad motive underneath a good one,
permeates human affairs from top to bottom. This subtle and elusive kind of self-righteousness can
underlie the smallest act or thought. Learning daily to spot, admit, and correct these flaws is
the essence of character-building and good living.
 
- 12 Steps & 12 Traditions, pp. 94 - 95

Thought to Ponder
Self-righteousness is a loud din raised to drown the voice of guilt within us.

AA-related 'Alconym'
L O V E  =  Leave Out Violent Emotion.

 

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
In grateful service,
