Sharing Our Message Day 5

Nature stamps

 

Development of humankind’s spiritual capacity means more than the end of war. It means that we can fully harness our resources to learn about our natural world and how to better and more successfully live in it without harming either the environment or ourselves.

Cluster 19  14th Cycle Expansion Phase – Day 5

Friends, please join us in reciting this prayer today to support the teaching we are engaged in during our expansion phase:

O my God, aid Thou Thy servant to raise up the Word, and to refute what is vain and false, to establish the truth, to spread the sacred verses abroad, reveal the splendors, and make the morning’s light to dawn in the hearts of the righteous. 

Thou art, verily, the Generous, the Forgiving.

– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

 

And we share this quote for your reflection today:

The Pen of the Most High hath decreed and imposed upon every one the obligation to teach this Cause…. God will, no doubt, inspire whosoever detacheth himself from all else but Him, and will cause the pure waters of wisdom and utterance to gush out and flow copiously from his heart.  Verily, thy Lord, the All-Merciful, is powerful to do as He willeth, and ordaineth whatsoever He pleaseth.

                Wert thou to consider this world, and realize how fleeting are the things that pertain unto it, thou wouldst choose to tread no path except the path of service to the Cause of thy Lord.  None would have the power to deter thee from celebrating His praise, though all men should arise to oppose thee.

-Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 313
