The subject of humility is a difficult one. Humility
is not thinking less of myself than I ought to; it is acknowledging
that I do certain things well, it is accepting a compliment
God can only do for me what
He can do through me. Humility is the result
of knowing that God is the doer, not me. In the light
of this awareness, how can I take pride in my accomplishments?
I am an instrument and any work I seem to be doing is being
done by God through me. I ask God on a daily basis to
remove my shortcomings, in order that I may more freely go
about my A.A. business of "love and service."
