LESSON OF THE DAY 1021
Among the signs of God is that you see the earth faded away, then We shower water on it, and it stirs and grows: the one who enlivens it is the One who gives life to the dead, having power over all things. [41: 39]
Hadith of the Day:
By Allah, Allah has more joy due to the repentance of His servant than one of you has when he finds his lost provisions in an open land. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
As you recollect all that God has granted you which you have desired for yourself, so you should endure patiently with God in that through which God desires to try you. [Ibn Ata'Allah]
Guidance of the Day:
Adapting, adjusting, and accommodating are qualities that we in western culture sometimes have a hard time understanding or putting into action. There is a great respect for working with the seasons, never against them. Life in the flow does not guarantee any recipes; there are no cut and dried, pre-packaged rules of thumb. Sometimes the answer is in one principle; sometimes it is the opposite.
Each challenge requires a unique solution. We have to feel our way through life. We must be flexible enough to know what needs to be done in the moment, even if it was not needed to be done a moment ago. If we have faith that God is guiding us, He will lead us to where we can serve in our own way-----which is His own way. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
We are rich only through what we give and poor only through what we refuse. A cheerful giver does not count the cost of what he gives. His heart is set on pleasing and cheering him to whom the gift is given.
