Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
A.A. Thought for the Day
We used to take a negative view of almost everything. There seemed to be very little good in the world, but lots of hypocrisy and sham. People could not be trusted. Those were our general attitudes toward life. Now we are more positive. We believe in people and in their capabilities. There is much love and truth and honesty in the world. Am I less negative and more positive?
Meditation for the Day
I think of God as a Great Friend and try to realize the wonder of that friendship. When I give God not only worship, obedience, and allegiance, but also close companionship, then God becomes my friend, even as I am God’s. I can feel we are working together. My prayers become more real to me when I feel that God counts on my friendship and I count on God’s.
Prayer for the Day
I pray that I may think of God as my friend.
