Daily Reflections

January 24


There is action and more action.  "Faith without works is dead."  ...To be helpful is our only aim.


      I understand that service is a vital part of recovery but I often wonder, "What can I do?"  Simply start with what I have today!  I look around to see where there is a need. Are the ashtrays full?  Do I have hands and feet to empty them?  Suddenly I'm involved!  The best speaker may make the worst coffee; the member who’s best with newcomers may be unable to read; the one willing to clean up may make a mess of the bank account -- yet every one of these people and jobs is essential to an active group.  The miracle of service is this:  when I use what I have, I find there is more available to me than I realized before.
