LESSON OF THE DAY 808
And whatever thing you are given is but the stuff of the world, and its adornment; while what is with God is better and more lasting. Don't you understand? [28: 60]
Hadith of the Day:
Three things are devastating: to believe in the good of avarice, to cater to one's lust, and to be an egoist. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
For which is He more to be praised; for His blessings, or for His forbearance in the face of our refusal to give thanks for them. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]
Guidance of the Day:
Human growth is a process of experimentation, trial, and error, ultimately leading to wisdom. Each time you choose to trust yourself and take action, you can never quite be certain how the situation will turn out. Sometimes you are victorious, and sometimes you become disillusioned. The failed experiments, however, are no less valuable than the experiments that ultimately prove successful; in fact, you usually learn more from your perceived "failures" than you do from your perceived "success."
Most people feel great disappointment and anger when their plans in which they have invested a great deal of energy, time, and money fall through. The first reaction for most of us is to feel that we have failed. While it is easy enough to jump to this depressing conclusion, it will impede your ability to progress with your life lessons. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Self-sacrifice is the real miracle out of which all the reported miracles grow. Self-sacrifice is never entirely unselfish, for the giver never fails to receive. For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice-----no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.
