AA Thought for the Day
August 11, 2021
That we need no longer be square pegs in round holes but can fit
and belong in God's scheme of things—these are the permanent
and legitimate satisfactions of right living for which no amount of
pomp and circumstance, no heap of material possessions, could
possibly be substitutes. True ambition is not what we thought it was.
True ambition is the deep desire to live usefully and walk humbly
under the grace of God.

Thought to Ponder
What lies behind us and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
