Don’t Be Tempted

Proverbs 1:10-16 Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you, don’t go along with them. If they say–“Let’s go out and raise some hell. Let’s beat up some old man, mug some old woman. Let’s pick them clean and get them ready for their funerals. We’ll load up on top-quality loot. We’ll haul it home by the truckload. Join us for the time of your life! With us, it’s share and share alike!”– Oh, friend, don’t give them a second look; don’t listen to them for a minute. They’re racing to a very bad end, hurrying to ruin everything they lay hands on.
The WORD For Recovery

Helping The Sick

Luke 6:41Why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?”

 People in recovery are the best people at telling others how to obtain and maintain recovery. Even the ones that can’t achieve it for themselves.

One of the best quotes I have ever heard in this area was a quote by Pastor Rick Warren who said: “Sick people can’t help sick people.” We are all keen to help someone else but not always so keen to help ourselves.

Jesus says in Matthew 9:12 “Healthy people don’t need a doctor–sick people do.”

The goal for all of us in recovery is SERVICE. To be used by God to help others achieve recovery. But it’s a process and you have to go through the process to get well enough yourself to be ready to help others.

  • Do you recognize where you are in the process of being able to help others?
