AA Thought for the Day
October 3, 2017
Spiritual Progress First
The head of the house ought to remember that he is mainly to blame for what befell his home.
He can scarcely square the account in his lifetime. But he must see the danger of over-concentration on
ﬁnancial success. Although ﬁnancial recovery is on the way for many of us, we found we could not place
money ﬁrst. For us, material well-being always followed spiritual progress; it never preceded.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 127
Thought to Ponder
Spiritual progress isn't what gets us sober, it's what keeps us sober.
