Inspiration for the Day
The primary purpose of every 12-Step meeting is to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers. This is a responsibility we must not forget. When we are speaking in a meeting, we could be the only voice a newcomer might hear on the solution to get sober. When we speak to a newcomer before or after the meeting, we might be the only person from whom they hear the message of recovery. This can easily be forgotten if we are not praying for God to speak though us and help us carry the message.
Meditation for the Day
Just for today, I will ask my Higher Power to speak through me and to carry a message to help the newcomer who might be at their very first meeting. I will ask my Higher Power to remind me of my primary purpose when I walk into a 12-Step meeting, which is to carry the message to the addict or alcoholic who still suffers.
