23 June ― FEAST OF RAḤMAT [MERCY]   Leave a comment

Three great fields of service lie open before young Bahá’ís, in which they will simultaneously be remaking the character of human society and preparing themselves for the work they can undertake later in their lives….

The third field of service is the preparation by youth for their later years. It is the obligation of a Bahá’í to educate his children; likewise it is the duty of the children to acquire knowledge of the arts and sciences and to learn a trade or a profession whereby they, in turn, can earn their living and support their families. This, for a Bahá’í youth, is in itself a service to God, a service, moreover, which can be combined with teaching the Faith and often with pioneering. The Bahá’í community will need men and women of many skills and qualifications; for, as it grows in size the sphere of its activities in the life of society will increase and diversify. Let Bahá’í youth, therefore, consider the best ways in which they can ug and develop their native abilities for the service of mankind and the Cause of God, whether this be as farmers, teachers, doctors, artisans, musicians, or any one of the multitude of livelihoods that are open to them.

24 June ― FEAST OF RAḤMAT [MERCY]

MORNING:

These few have been endued with

the Divine Elixir that can, alone, transmute into purest

gold the dross of the world, and have been empowered

to administer the infallible remedy for all the ills that

afflict the children of men.

—His Holiness Bahá’u’lláh

Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 183

EVENING:

If ye obey Me you will see that

which We have promised you, and I will make you the

friends of My Soul in the realm of My Greatness and

the Companions of My Beauty in the heaven of My

Might forever.

—His Holiness Bahá’u’lláh

God Passes By, p. x

FROM THE CENTRE OF THE COVENANT  ‘ABDU’L-BAHÁ:

In this day, the beloved of God must

not hesitate or delay an instant in teaching the

Cause . . . to the soul who is the cause of guidance to

another soul the recompense of a martyr in the way of

God will be assuredly recorded by the pen of the Cause

for his deed . . . Do according to what host been commanded

and do not be of those who tarry.
