    Have we kept something to ourselves which should be discussed with another person at once?

    Our admission of character defects dismantles the wall that separates us from others. Few techniques we have learned have been so successful at allowing the Spirit of God to flow into us as this one. Of course it will continue to work for us as long as we continue to apply this principle to our lives.



    Were we kind and loving toward all? What could we have done better? Were we thinking of ourselves most of the time? Or were we thinking of what we could do for others, of what we could pack into the stream of life?

    Having been restored to sanity, we can plainly see where our thinking is off the bearm. We know now how to handle situations that used to baffle us. When we feel remorseful, we know it is due to our selfishness and self-seeking. Constant thought of others and how we might help to meet their needs is the answer we have found (20:1)



    After making our review we ask God’s forgiveness and inquire what corrective measures should be taken.

    As in each of the steps, we are given clear-cut directions on how to access the power of God to make needed changes in our lives. We ask God to forgive us—to come to us first. When we fall short of perfection, we ask God for help. Thankfully this works. When we ask God for guidance to live up to our ideals, we receive the help we need.
