Today, I will help… Today, I will help someone sick… Today, I will help someone spiritually sick… Today I will help someone spiritually sick who has wronged me! For many of us a vision for this is one of the most difficult challenges in our program. Yet, as the Big Book of AA explains, it is key to our spiritual recovery.
“This was our course: We realized that the people who wronged us were perhaps spiritually sick. Though we did not like their symptoms and the way these disturbed us, they, like ourselves, were sick too. We asked God to help us show them the same tolerance, pity, and patience that we would cheerfully grant a sick friend. When a person offended we said to ourselves, ‘This is a sick man. How can I be helpful to him? God save me from being angry. Thy will be done.'” (pages 66-67 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous).
I want to be free from anger and experience life! So today – I will be ready to help someone spiritually sick who has wronged me!
