AA Thought for the Day
March 20, 2019
When we early AAs got our first glimmer of how spiritually prideful we could be,
we coined this expression: "Don't try to get too damned good by Thursday!"
That old-time admonition may look like another one of those handy alibis that
can excuse us from trying our best. Yet a closer view reveals just the contrary.
This is our AA way of warning against pride-blindness,
and the imaginary perfections we do not possess.
- The Language of the Heart, p. 255
Thought to Ponder
Swallowing my pride will not get me drunk.
P R I D E = Pretty Ridiculous Individual Directing Everything.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
