Reflection for the Day
We’re taught in The Program and the Twelve Steps that the chief activator of our defects has been self-centered fear – mainly fear that we would lose something we already possessed or that we would fail to get something we demanded. Living on the basis of unsatisfied demands, we obviously were in a state of continual disturbance and frustration. Therefore, we are taught, no peace will be ours unless we find a means of reducing these demands.
Have I become entirely ready to have God remove all my defects of character?
Today I Pray
May I make no unrealistic demands on life which, because of their grandiosity, cannot be met. May I place no excessive demands on others which, when they are not fulfilled, leave me disappointed and let down.
Today I Will Remember
The set-up for a let-down.
