LESSON OF THE DAY 987
The one who brings truth, and the one who confirms it-------they are the conscientious. They will have whatever they wish in the presence of their Lord; that is the reward of those who do good, that God may pardon the worst of their deeds, and reward them for the best of what they used to do. [39: 33,34,35]
Hadith of the Day:
A believer never has his fill of good deeds until he ends up in Paradise. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If we measure ourselves against the commands of God and to the life of the one whom He sent as His mercy, we will perhaps be able to see our sad condition. Then perhaps our devotion, our worship, will be a little more than sincere and true. [Imam al Birgivi]
Guidance of the Day:
We are constantly creating and re-creating one another through our thoughts. This can be a vital key to improving troubled relationships. Relationships suffer when we hold negative pictures of each other. If you want to bring a difficult relationship into the light of love, make up your mind to change your image of who both of you are.
Realize that the relationship will continue in a rut and you will tend to live out each other's negative expectations until one of you sees both of you as Godly. You do not have to wait for the other person to change; you have the power to change the relationship for both of you. As soon as you let go of your ideas of limitations about the other person or yourself, you set both of you free, and the relationship is likely to improve. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it------would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
