Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
He who is swift to believe is swift to forget.
— Abraham Joshua Herschel
Life is full of questions. Many people tell us they have the answers. We have to be careful of who and what we believe. Other people’s ideas may not fit us.
The program doesn’t tell us much about what to believe. It teaches us how to believe. How well the program works for us depends on what we believe and how well we live it.
When we face all the facts, we can really believe. We believe we are powerless over our addiction. We believe we must and can change some things in our lives. We believe we can trust a Higher Power to care for us. When we choose to believe, we want to choose the best beliefs we can. And once we believe, we must not forget.
Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, help me know You, and help me know the truth.
Today I’ll think about my First Step. Do I truly believe I’m powerless over my disease?
