Oct. 22, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015

We alcoholics should never claim Justice. It is the one thing in the way of a virtue that we can’t use. It would be poison.

It would be found upon examination that had we received justice, we would never have gotten to the door of AA. The warden wouldn’t have allowed it. If we are wise, we will confine our conversations to Mercy, for this is something we want and need. But if Justice was ever given us in full measure, we would find it would be something we didn’t want.
