THE BLESSING OF GIVING

“We have gained some understanding of the ancient words ‘Freely ye have received, freely give.’” 12&12 p.166, Tradition Eight

“God will give to each person according to what he has done.” Romans 2:6

For what it's worth: In my twisted mind, getting, not giving, was my motive during my miserable drinking existence. Once I stopped drinking in Alcoholics Anonymous and the alcoholic fog lifted, I finally saw how wrong I was. Recovery in AA is all about giving. AA taught me that I have to give it away to keep it. More than that, my experience repeatedly proves to me that I not only keep it, I always get more than I give. For me, that is the blessing of giving. That must be why my Heavenly Father is encouraging to me to give more. It is always in my best interest. Actually, here lately He has been dropping hints that self-denial is a nice gift to Him. I hear His whispers that I can do without some material thing and offer it to Him, not thinking of it as a sacrifice, but as a gift. I am not giving up but giving up to Him.

God bless you!
Joe W.
