The child claimed what’s his.
A grown man can’t hold what’s his.
I make little go far.
The above verse is in reference to one of our boys speaking out, about respect, across all lines. He is the smallest of our students, but is being raised by loving parents, to not give an inch, to anyone bigger and stronger, when it comes to holding onto what belongs to him.
A very troubled man, claiming to speak for his Lord, is finding that hubris is an empty vessel, and doesn’t take the place of living in the path of God’s Messengers. He is leaving shattered pieces, for others to pick up and carry forward.
Much had to be done, financially, these past two weeks. I made it, thanks to a short-term advance from my bank, which will be re-paid, in full, at midnight. This is a small example of what gets achieved, time and again, with relatively little. I will not let my responsibilities, to loved ones, or to those who meet my needs, ever go unmet.
Responsibility for self is always basic.
