In 12-Step fellowship we say that “Faith without works is dead.” Faith without taking action steps won’t do us much good. It doesn’t mean that faith isn’t important — in fact, it is vital for recovery. We need faith in a Higher Power so that we have a calm place to start. Once our faith is firm, we can better use the tools of the program in a more productive way.
Today, I will have faith in my Higher Power, and I will back that faith with action. I will remember that action gives meaning and purpose to my faith.
