AA Thought for the Day
April 22, 2023
Spiritual Progress First
The head of the house ought to remember that he is mainly to blame
for what befell his home. He can scarcely square the account in his
lifetime. But he must see the danger of over-concentration on ﬁnancial
success. Although ﬁnancial recovery is on the way for many of us,
we found we could not place money ﬁrst. For us, material well-being
always followed spiritual progress; it never preceded.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (The Family Afterward) p. 127
Thought to Ponder . . .
Spiritual progress isn't what gets us sober, it's what keeps us sober.
