OCTOBER 22 Reflection for the Day
“Not all those who know their minds know their hearts as well,” wrote La Rochefoucauld. The Gamblers Anonymous Program is of inestimable value for those of us recovering compulsive gamblers who want to know ourselves and who are courageous enough to seek growth through self-examination and self-improvement. If I remain honest, open-minded, and willing, The GA Program will enable me to rid myself of my self-deceptive attitudes and character flaws that for so long prevented me from growing into the kind of person I want to be.
Do I try to help others understand GA’s Twelve Steps of Recovery? Do I carry the message by example?
Today I Pray
I ask God’s blessing for the Gamblers Anonymous Fellowship, which has shown me so much about myself that I was not willing to face on my own. May I have the courage to be confronted and to confront, not only to be honest for honesty’s sake – which may be reason enough – but to allow myself and the others in the group to grow in self-knowledge.
Today I Will Remember
We are mirrors of each other.
