Endigar 433 ~ Readiness to Serve Others

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

. . . our Society has concluded that it has but one high mission – to carry the A.A. message to those who don’t know there’s a way out.  (Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 151)

The “Light” to freedom shines bright on my fellow alcoholics as each one of us challenges the other to grow. The “Steps” to self-improvement have small beginnings, but each Step builds the “ladder” out of the pit of despair to new hope. Honesty becomes my “tool” to unfurl the “chains” which bound me. A sponsor, who is a caring listener, can help me to truly hear the message guiding me to freedom.

I ask God for the courage to live in such a way that the Fellowship may be a testimony to His favor. This mission frees me to share my gifts of wellness through a spirit of readiness to serve others.
