If I truly loved I would not be acting out

I often hear people in the programme mention that they love their spouse. I had said that too - and I really believed it. 

But the White Book tells me that lust kills love. I didn't truly love my spouse or anyone, including God. I just used the words, as if I was reciting it from the dictionary definition. But if I truly loved, then I wouldn't be acting out with lust. 

That was difficult for me to accept but true. 

Thanks to this programme (working the 12 Steps with a sponsor), today I take the actions of love.
