AA Thought for the Day
April 9, 2021
The Third Step
We thought well before taking this step making sure we were ready; that we
could at last abandon ourselves utterly to Him. We found it very desirable to
take this spiritual step with an understanding person, such as our wife, best
friend, or spiritual adviser. But it is better to meet God alone than with one
who might misunderstand. The wording was, of course, quite optional so long
as we expressed the idea, voicing it without reservation. This was only a
beginning, though if honestly and humbly made, an effect, sometimes a very
great one, was felt at once.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 63
