AA Thought for the Day
November 20, 2018
Reliance, Not Defiance
"Belief meant reliance, not defiance. In A.A, we saw the fruits of this belief:
men and women spared from alcohol's final catastrophe. We saw them meet
and transcend their other pains and trials. We saw them calmly accept impossible
situations, seeking neither to run nor to recriminate. This was not only faith;
it was faith that worked under all conditions. We soon concluded that whatever
price in humility we must pay, we would pay."
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 31
