LESSON OF THE DAY 929
Whatever God grants people out of mercy, none can withhold; and whatever God withholds, no one can deliver, for God is the almighty, the epitome of wisdom. [35: 2]
Hadith of the Day:
Help the one in need, and help him by asking for help for him. God will reward you for both your efforts. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Television is a hellish vision because it robs us of the sense of truth. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]
Guidance of the Day:
Uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour we will pull into the station. How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes for loitering---------waiting, waiting, waiting for the station. Sooner or later we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true joy of life is in the trip. The station is only and illusion. It constantly outdistances us.
Relish the moment in a good motto. "This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." It isn't the burdens of today that drive men mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us the today. So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, swim more rivers, and watch more sunsets. Life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Great opportunities come to all, but many do not know they have met them. The only preparation to take advantage of them is simply fidelity to watch what each day brings. The word is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck. No great man ever complains of want of opportunities.
