Thoughts For The Day
July 8, 2013
"It is plain that a life which includes deep resentment leads only to futility and unhappiness. To the precise extent that we permit these, do we squander the hours that might have been worth while. But with the alcoholic, whose hope is the maintenance
and growth of a spiritual experience, this business of resentment is infinitely grave. We found that it is fatal. For when harboring such feelings we shut ourselves off from the sunlight of the Spirit. The insanity of alcohol returns and we drink again. And with us, to drink is to die."
1976AAWS, Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 66
Thought to Consider . . .
We are prisoners of our own resentments.
Forgiveness unlocks the door and sets us free.
