    MAY 25 Reflection for the Day

    When we’re new in Gamblers Anonymous, we’re novices at reaching out for friendship – or even accepting it when it’s offered. Sometimes we’re not quite sure how to do it or, indeed, whether it will actually work. Gradually, however, we become restored; we become teachable. We learn, for example, as Moliere wrote, “The more we love our friends, the less we flatter them.”

    Just for today, will I reach out if I need a friend?

    Today I Pray
    May God help me to discover what true friendship is. In my new relationships, I pray that I may not be so eager for approval that I will let myself be dishonest – through flattery, half-truths, false cheeriness, protective white lies.

    Today I Will Remember
    A friend is honest.
