HUMILITY IS A GIFT, p.203

HUMILITY IS A GIFT, p.203
July 13

As long as we placed self-reliance first, a genuine reliance upon a Higher Power was out of the question. That basic ingredient of all humility, a desire to seek and do God’s will, was missing.
12 & 12, p.72

When I first came to A.A., I wanted to find some of the elusive quality called humility. I didn’t realize I was looking for humility because I thought it would help me get what I wanted, and I woulddo anything for others if I thought God would somehow reward me for it. I try to remember now that the people I meet in the  course of my day are as close to God as I am ever going to get while on this earth. I need to pray for knowledge of God’s will today, and see how my experience with hope and pain can help other people; if I can do that, I don’t need to search for humility, it has found me.HUMILITY IS A GIFT, p.203
