REFLECTION FOR THE DAY
“How does the Program work?” newcomers sometimes ask. The two answers I most often hear are “very well” and slowly.” I’m appreciative of both answers, facetious as they may first sound, because my self-analyzing tends to be faulty. Sometimes I’ve failed to share my defects with the right people; other times, I’ve confessed [i]their [i] defects, rather than my own; at still other times, my sharing of defects has been more in the nature of shrill complaints about problems. The fact is that none of us like the self-searching, the leveling of our pride, and the confession of our shortcomings which the Steps require. But we eventually see that the Program really works. “Have I picked up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at my feet?”
TODAY I PRAY
May God keep me from laying out my defects by comparing them to someone else’s. We are, by nature, relativists and comparers, who think in terms of “worse than…” not quite as bad as…” or “better than…”. May I know that my faults are faults, whether or not they are “better than…” others’.
TODAY I WILL REMEMBER
Bad is bad, even when it’s “better than”.
