AA Thought for the Day
April 16, 2020
Character and Comfort
But whenever we had to choose between character and comfort, the
character-building was lost in the dust of our chase after what we
thought was happiness. Seldom did we look at character-building as
something desirable in itself, something we would like to strive for whether
our instinctual needs were met or not. We never thought of making honesty,
tolerance, and true love of man and God the daily basis of living.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Seven) p. 72
Thought to Ponder
Character is what I am; reputation is what people think I am.
