Helping Others

I was taught early on that in order for me to keep my sobriety that I must be willing to give it away as freely as it was given to me.    Sometimes helping another alcoholic won’t be convenient but in order to insure my own sobriety I must reach out and help others.  I need to carry the message but be sure that I’m not carrying the mess or spreading around my own defects. 

I like how it says in the BB on pg 164  Ask Him in your morning meditation what you can do for the man who is still sick.  The answers WILL come IF your own house is in order.  BUT obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got.  See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others.

I need to concentrate on making sure that my own house is in order so that I can be useful to God by helping others and that I will have something that I can give them to help. I also need to be willing to step out and help when the help is needed and not necessarily when its convenient.  I’ve learned that people need you when they need you and I’m so grateful that their were people there for me when I needed them even at the most inconvenient times.
