Exposed Virtue ...
Blessing in the name of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please let me share with you what I have read today:
"Just as a treasure that is exposed tarnishes and loses its value, so a virtue which is known vanishes; just as wax melts when it is near fire, so the soul is destroyed by praise and loses all the results of its labor."
"كما أن الكنز المكشوف يتلوث ويفقد بريقه وقيمته، هكذا تزول الفضيلة المعلنة. وكما أن الشمع يذوب عندما يتعرض للنار، هكذا تتحطم النفس عندما تتعرض للمديح، وتخسر كل حصيلة تعبها."
Pray for me as I pray for you all.
