AA Thought for the Day
June 23, 2018
We who have escaped these extremes are apt to congratulate ourselves. Yet can we?
After all, hasn't it been self-interest, pure and simple, that has enabled most of us
to escape? Not much spiritual effort is involved in avoiding excesses which will bring
us punishment anyway. But when we face up to the less violent aspects of these
very same defects, then where do we stand?

Thought to Ponder
A "shortcoming" is like a flat tire. A "character defect" is like driving on it.
