Some people in the Gamblers Anonymous Program feel that they can’t do the things they want to do. They doubt their own ability. But actually, every person has untapped ability. We’re children of God, which should give us a strong clue as to the infinite nature of our ability. As spiritual beings, we’re unlimited. We may find it easier to accept this as true of some person who shines in a particular field. I may compare my own accomplishments with another’s and feel discouraged. But the only comparison I need make or should make is with myself.

Am I a better, more productive person today?

Today I Pray

May I realize that I am a child of God. And His loving-parent promise to give me what I need, not what I might want, is His way of teaching me to be what I am, not what I dreamed I should be. As a spiritual being, I can truly become a productive person, perhaps even do some of the things I once felt unable to do without the gambler’s grandiosity, which lulled me into false confidence.

Today I Will Remember

To compare me with the old me.
