7th Step

“Humbly asked him to remove our shortcomings.” This is AA’s 7th Step.

Don’t even get me started on why God is referred to as male. Puh Leeeze.

And No Thanks. If I’m going to ask God for something, at the very least, it’ll be something that’s going to help everybody. Like – oh, I don’t know – DIRECTION maybe.

From the Cambridge Dictionary: SHORTCOMING – fault or a failure to reach a particular standard

WHOSE STANDARD?!

Think about this – what on earth would you do with yourself if God removed your shortcomings? You wouldn’t have anything to work on. I mean, color me wrong here, but if I had to guess – I’d say even the Dalai Lama considers himself to still have a shortcoming or two.

Thoughts?
