April 4, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener

Monday, April 4, 2016 

It was very hard for us alcoholics to realize that God has a big world on His hands and that He has other chores than just to give us rain when we want rain and sunshine when we want sunshine. We always thought the Universe revolved around us. 

That He knows His job is evidenced by the regular return of days and seasons, by His distribution of weather in such a manner that the world has never been devoid of food. Think what chaos would exist if He had allowed us to run it our way. 

God has given us many controls over Nature, but He knows the limits of human intelligence and the extent of human selfishness.
