LESSON OF THE DAY 597
Keep yourself patient with those who call on their Lord morning and evening seeking to honor God: and do not disregard them, seeking the finery of the life of the world. [18: 28]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever eats pure food, acts with prophetic scruples, and secures others from his own misfortunes shall enter Paradise. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not think evil of anything that comes from your brother Muslim's tongue whenever there is a way to interpret it in a good way. [Omar radi Allah anhu]]
Guidance of the Day:
Valuing this Moment: This moment, we are right where we need to be, right where we are meant to be. How often we waste our time and energy wishing we were someone else, were doing something else, or were someplace else. We may wish our present circumstances were different. We needlessly confuse ourselves and divert our energy by thinking that our present moment is a mistake. But we are right where we need to be for now. Our feelings, thoughts, circumstances, challenges, tasks -- all of it is on schedule. We spoil the beauty of the present moment by wishing for something else.
Come back home to yourself. Come back home to the present moment. We will not change things by escaping or leaving the moment. We will change things by surrendering to and accepting the moment. Some moments are easier to accept than others. To trust the process, to trust all of it, without hanging on to the past or peering too far into the future, requires a great deal of faith. Surrender to the moment. Get into the moment; the moment is right. We are where we are, and it is okay. It is right where we are meant to be to get where we are going tomorrow. And that place will be good. it has been planned in love for us. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
Judge your worth in the Creator's sight by how much space He occupies in your heart, and your worth in people's eyes by how you treat them.
