For every opportunity to grow.
Everything and everyone in our path, positive and negative, is an opportunity for us to become better. Let’s not waste that or take it for granted. For instance, I read this quote that rings true for me:
“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.” -Kahlil Gibran
Lord, remind me always to be thankful for the unsolicited teachers in my path, for they often present the best opportunity for growth. May their lessons stick.
What are you thankful for today?
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
“I never learned anything while I was talking.“
“You are my brother and I love you. I love you worshipping in your church, kneeling in your temple, and praying in your mosque. You and I and all are children of one religion, for the varied paths of religion are but the fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being, extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, anxious to receive all.”
“It is just that we should be grateful, not only to those with whose views we may agree, but also to those who have expressed more superficial views; for these also contributed something, by developing before us the powers of thought.”
