AA Thought for the Day
May 12, 2022
Defect of Pride
For pride, leading to self-justification, and always spurred by
conscious or unconscious fears, is the basic breeder of most
human difficulties, the chief block to true progress. Pride lures
us into making demands upon ourselves or upon others which
cannot be met without perverting or misusing our God-given instincts.
