LESSON OF THE DAY 924
He knows what goes into the earth and what comes out of it, and what descends from the sky and what ascends to it; and being epitome of mercy and forgiveness. [34: 2]
Hadith of the Day:
It suffices you for sin to be always contentious. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny, know it was to save you from adversity. One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions; one small loss prevents greater losses. [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
The foundation of relationship is acceptance. It is a great wisdom to accept people where they are on the journey. Acceptance is the welcoming open arms of relationship. People deserve to be cherished. In order to cherish people, we must look beyond our personal preferences, prejudices, and judgmental inclinations to discover and reverence the wonder and marvel of the individual.
It is helpful to remember that we are all at different points along the path. Our ability to love and cherish people increases infinitely as we learn to accept people for who they are and where they are on their journey. Some people are at places we ourselves have been before, others are in places we have not yet been. It is a journey---------trust that the same God who is moving you toward your purpose and dreams is moving them toward theirs. Even when you cannot understand people, accept them, cherish them. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand. . . and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late. Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood. . . Make big plans, aim high and work. If a man constantly aspires, is he not elevated? Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
