AA Thought for the Day

Faith Without Works
Faith without works was dead, he said. And how appallingly true for the alcoholic!
For if an alcoholic failed to perfect and enlarge his spiritual life through work and
self-sacrifice for others, he could not survive the certain trials and low spots ahead.
If he did not work, he would surely drink again, and if he drank, he would surely die.
Then faith would be dead indeed. With us it is just like that.

Thought to Ponder
