Step 10

As we begin to work Step 10 we will see that it is made up of three key
parts.

1. The what: “We continued to take personal inventory …”

2. The why: “ … and when we were wrong …”

3. The then what:“ … promptly admitted it.”

Tonight we are going to spend a little time looking at each
of these parts of Step 10. Of course, we need an acrostic. Tonight the word is
TEN.

Take time to do a daily inventory

Evaluate the good and the bad

Need to admit our wrongs promptly

The T answers the “what” question: TAKE time to do a
daily inventory.

To inventory something is simply to count it. Businesses
take inventory all the time. Principle 7 reminds us to “reserve a daily time
with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer.” This gives us quiet
time to count the good and bad things we did during a particular period of
time. Lamentations 3:40 exhorts us to “examine our ways and test them, and … return
to the Lord.”

We need to ask ourselves these questions:

  • · What good did I do today?
  • · In what areas did I blow it today?
  • · Did I do or say anything that hurt anyone today?
  • · Do I owe anyone amends?
  • · What did I learn from my actions today?

I do this on a daily basis. I reflect on my day to see if I
harmed someone, acted or reacted out of fear or selfishness, or went out of my
way to show kindness.

Remember to keep your inventory balanced.

The E in our acrostic answers the “why” question:
EVALUATE the good and the bad.

The step doesn’t say, “ … if we’re wrong.” That’s
what I wish it said. If I’m ever wrong … if perhaps I blew
it … No. The step says when I’m wrong.

Remember:

Would you rather be right or well?

First John 1:8–10 (TLB) says: “If we say we have no sin, we
are only fooling ourselves, and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess
our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from
every wrong. (And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ
died to wash away our sins). If we claim we have not sinned, we are lying and
calling God a liar, for he says we have sinned.”

In John 3:21 Jesus tells us, “Whoever lives by the truth
comes into the light.” Step 10 brings us, on a daily basis, into the light.

Once we see the light, we have a choice. We can ignore it or
we can act on it. If we act, we are living the last part of Step 10 and answer
the “then what” question. We NEED to admit our wrongs promptly.

In Matthew 5:23–24 (MSG),
Jesus tells us, “This is how I want you to
conduct yourself in these matters. If you enter your place of worship
and, about to make an offering, you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has
against you, abandon your offering, leave immediately, go to this friend and
make things right. Then, and only then, come back and work things out with God.”

In other words, admit your wrongs … promptly!

A journal is a good place to keep track or where we owe amends,
forgiveness, and gratitude.
