AA Thought for the Day
February 16, 2018
A man may criticize or laugh at himself and it will affect others favorably,
but criticism or ridicule coming from another often produces the contrary effect.
Members of a family should watch such matters carefully, for one careless, inconsiderate
remark has been known to raise the very devil. We alcoholics are sensitive people.
It takes some of us a long time to outgrow that serious handicap.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 125
Thought to Ponder
To be sensitive is to feel the thoughts and hearts of others as only you would want yours felt.
P U T = Practice Using Tolerance.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
