AA Thought for the Day
July 28, 2018
Give and Receive
To watch the eyes of men and women open with wonder as they move from
darkness into light, to see their lives quickly fill with new purpose and meaning,
to see whole families reassembled, to see the alcoholic outcast received back into
his community in full citizenship, and above all to watch these people awaken to
the presence of a loving God in their lives—these things are the substance of what
we receive as we carry A.A.'s message to the next alcoholic.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 110
Thought to Ponder
In AA, we discover that it is impossible to give without receiving,
or receive without giving.

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