Proverbs 13:20 says we “Become wise by walking with the wise.” One of the cliche’s I heard often in the rooms of recovery over 30+ years is ‘STICK WITH THE WINNERS.’ and Proverbs 14:18 says “Foolish dreamers live in a world of illusion.”
True wisdom begins when we ‘Decide to let God help us and commit to working with Him to change.’ (Step Three)
True wisdom begins when we ‘Ask God what He will have us do and His courage to do it’ (Step Eleven)
True wisdom begins when ‘We apply the principles of recovery to every area of our lives on a daily basis to the best of our ability at this time.’ (Step Twelve)
True wisdom is the ability to see our lives from God’s perspective, identify the best course of action to take and do what we need t do to change our ways.
You won’t find out who ‘THE WINNERS’ are until you get involved and start building a supportive recovery network for yourself. And you put an end to your ‘FOOLISH DREAMS,’ until you ‘Investigate and record with God’s help your sinful habits and attitudes.’ (Step Four)
