The Eye Opener
Tuesday, May 9, 2017

God has done some mighty fine work with what the world thought was very indifferent material. St. Paul and St. Augustine were two examples of men that God chose that no personnel officer in the world today would have given the OK. AA is full of similar examples where God has chosen the godless and made him His instrument for the performance of good work.

The tremendous energy, zeal, initiative, enthusiasm and ambition that were factors in our becoming alcoholics, now diverted to better use, make us well qualified to serve in God’s cause.
