AA Thought for the Day
December 3, 2018
A Real Chance
We have learned that the satisfaction of instincts cannot be the sole end and
aim of our lives. If we place instincts first, we have got the cart before the horse;
we shall be pulled backward into disillusionment. But when we are willing to place
spiritual growth first—then and only then do we have a real chance.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, "Step Twelve" p. 114
Thought to Ponder
Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional, growing spiritually is up to me.
