Principle 8: Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words.
“Blessed are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” (Matthew 5:10)
Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others, and practice these principles in all our affairs.
“Brothers if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently.  But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” (Galatians 6:1)
What does it mean to GIVE? 
“Freely you have received, freely give.” (Matthew 10:8)
God first 
I becomes we
