Divine Wisdom: The passage, “To each is a goal to which Allah turns him; so compete with one another in good works.” Surah Al-Baqara- QN2:148, reminds us that, there is a calling to fulfil God’s purpose for our lives. If we listen to His words and act on it and keep improving our knowledge and wisdom by either spreading the words through our good actions or spreading the knowledge, we are indeed ‘Sowers’; compared to those who listen to the word and don’t act on it, or maybe act on a portion that applies to their thinking and doesn’t allow the light to shine or blossom, they are indeed the ‘hoarders’; then they should not expect God to bless their plans for He opposes the haughty but shows favour to the humble, for whom everything they have are gifts from Him and everything they will ever need comes from.
In other words, He gives seeds to Sowers, not Hoarders and He will multiply our seeds when we sow them to fulfil His purposes.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God is able to bless us abundantly, so that in all things and at all times, having all that we need, we will abound in every good work;
2) When we have freely scattered our gifts fir His worship, our righteousness will endure forever, we will be enriched in every way and we can be generous on every occasion; and
3) What we believe about Him and our resources will determine what we believe in Him for;
Teach you, as we open a new chapter in our lives after the Ramadan, to be conscious of the God-given favour, wisdom and blessings of the holy month and always ensure that your hearts motive is right by Him!
