Helping others is the foundation stone of your recovery. A kindly act once in a while isn’t enough. You have to act the Good Samaritan every day, if need be.

Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?” And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:30-37 NKJV
Father God, I thank you for your mercy. Thank you for bringing me out of despair and the pit of alcoholism. I thank you Father that you have opened my eyes and I don’t just pass by anymore but I reach out a hand to help. I pray that I would have compassion for those that are still suffering and the ability to show them mercy and a way out. I pray Father that you would show me how to help the man or woman who is still sick. I thank you that you provide all I need to help them for you are my provider. In Jesus Name, Amen!
