AA Thought for the Day
September 19, 2022
This vital Step was also the means by which we began to get the feeling that
we could be forgiven, no matter what we had thought or done. Often it was while
working on this Step with our sponsors or spiritual advisers that we first felt
truly able to forgive others, no matter how deeply we felt they had wronged us.
Our moral inventory had persuaded us that all-round forgiveness was desirable,
but it was only when we resolutely tackled Step Five that we inwardly knew we'd
be able to receive forgiveness and give it, too.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Five) pp. 57 - 58
Thought to Ponder
We are prisoners of our own resentments.
Forgiveness unlocks the door and sets us free.
T U F F = Tolerance, Understanding, Fairness, Forgiveness.
