Endigar 501 ~ . . .To Be of Service

From Tomorrow’s Daily Reflections;

Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 77)

It is clear that God’s plan for me is expressed through love. God loved me enough to take me from alleys and jails so that I could be made a useful participant in His world. My response is to love all of His children through service and by example. I ask God to help me imitate His love for me through my love for others.

heart-beating

 

The love of God in this whole recovery process only becomes relevant to me as I learn to hear and comprehend communication from Gomu (God of my understanding).   Until that becomes a “working part of the mind” (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 87), I must rely on the strength of my self-love and desire for self-preservation to motivate me to help others.  I must find a way to give what I desire to keep.  So, until that time, the best I can give is a simulation of His apparent love.

 

I am posting tomorrow’s reflection today because I have to make a long distant journey on an amends’ adventure.  God grant me the serenity, courage, and wisdom for this mission.
