October 14 in The Little Blue Book ONE DAY at a TIME in AL-ANON

October 14 in The Little Blue Book ONE DAY at a TIME in AL-ANON:

We come to Al-anon because we believe it has something we want. In other words, we come to get something for ourselves. At first we have no idea that this “getting” is intimately involved with Giving.

We soon discover that our willingness to help others has an immediate and beneficent reaction on us. Our progress in the program depends on that satisfying sense of sharing, giving of ourselves, whether it be to enlighten and comfort a newcomer, serving as a group officer, supporting our fellowship or listening patiently to someone in trouble.

TODAY’S REMINDER

The more I give of myself and the more generously I open my heart and my mind to others, the more growth I will experience as I deal with my problems. I learn in Al-Anon never to measure my giving against my getting; the very giving provides my reward.

“The giver is only a channel for the gifts he has received from God. He cannot hoard or withhold them without blocking the channel.”
