Feb. 26, 2024 - Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener


The Eye Opener

Monday, Feb. 26, 2024

Frequently we are asked, “Why waste your money on that guy? He’s a phony if ever I saw one.”  We have all heard this and often it was true but, after all, the monetary loss each month was way below our old whiskey bills. Every once in a while, the long shot does come in and the payoff is tremendous.

It is simply a case of betting on people instead of horses. These bets on people can’t lose, for if the phony abuses your generosity, the fault is his, not yours, and he is debited and you are credited by the Great Bookkeeper who has charge of the Treasury where “neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through and steal.”
