LESSON OF THE DAY 494
And We only sent down the Book down to you so you may clarify for them what they differ on; and as guidance and mercy to a people who believe. And God sends down water down from the sky, enlivening the earth thereby after it has died. Surely in that is a sign for people who are listening. [16: 64,65]
Hadith of the Day:
Indeed the angels lower their wings before the seeker of knowledge. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Worldly honor may be through wealth, but heavenly honor is certainly through works. [Omar radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Remember, one hundred years from now, all new people. In the scheme of things, one hundred years isn't all that long a time. However one thing is for sure: A hundred years from now we will all be gone from this planet. And when kept in mind, this idea can fill us with needed perspective during times of perceived crisis or stress.
If you have a flat tire or lock yourself out of your house, what's it going to mean one hundred years from now? How about if someone acted unkindly toward you or if you had to stay up most of the night working? What if your house didn't get cleaned or your computer breaks down? Suppose you can't afford to go on a much needed vacation, buy a new car, or move to a larger apartment? All of these things and most others are brought into a deeper perspective when looked at with a hundred-year view. [Don't Sweat The Small Stuff]
Food for Thought:
The antecedent to every action is a thought. It isn't the world that makes you unhappy, or the way people are in the world. It's how you process the people and events of our world.
