Daily Reprieve

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is Spiritual. “What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition" (Alcoholics Anonymous page 85). This maintenance is to change our choices, actions and character to conform to Spiritual standards, in other words, to “practice these principles in all our affairs." Alcoholics Anonymous has given us the tools, we need to live a Spiritual way of life, to do and to be our Father’s Love and Will. It is an overstatement to say, “Practice makes perfect”, but to seek through prayer and meditation daily to improve our conscious contact with our Father is a very good idea. Let us “Pay Forward” by practicing the Spiritual Principles we already have, encouraging others by our example. Daily living Spiritual Principles develops our Spiritual Condition, affecting our whole be-ing. There is nothing like a peaceful, compassionate love-filled heart and mind to turn others on. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
