It is often easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them—Adlai Stevenson

It easy to talk about our values. But when the clerk at the store gives extra change my mistake, those values get put to the test. It feels good to read about spirituality in a comfortable chair at home. But when we get stuck in a traffic jam, it’s hard to live by our values.

That’s why practicing our program daily helps. Practice prepares us for the tough times.

Maybe we’ll feel like drinking or using other drugs once a year. Maybe we’ll only get the wrong amount of change once a year. But if we live our values daily, we’ll be ready when the hard times come. Remember: “It’s not enough to talk the talk. You have to walk the walk.”

Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me live this program each day. Help me “walk the walk.”

Action for the Day:  Today, I’ll do a Step Ten, Taking an inventory tells me if I’m living up to my values.
