UNREMITTING INVENTORIES

by Daniel · 2 comments

It has been a while since I have put up a daily reflection. But today’s is awesome. I believe it is the key to our spiritual condition. I know it is what makes the difference in our lives compared to those outside of our fellowship!

Go, Go, Go…

UNREMITTING INVENTORIES

Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear. When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to someone we can help.

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 84

The immediate admission of wrong thoughts or actions is a tough task for most human beings, but for recovering alcoholics like me it is difficult because of my propensity toward ego, fear and pride. The freedom the A.A. program offers me becomes more abundant when, through unremitting inventories of myself, I admit, acknowledge and accept responsibility for my wrong-doing. It is possible then for me to grow into a deeper and better understanding of humility. My willingness to admit when the fault is mine facilitates the progression of my growth and helps me to become more understanding and helpful to others.

This is a great reminder for me to really think before I act. Am I acting out of ego or fear or pride? To really try to be the person I want to be. And to accept the responsibility when I am not quite that person. Thanks Daniel!
