Xmas Stockings and a Lump of Sinner - The Beauty of the Oneness of God

I know I was a bad boy. But come on.......!

We are all bad boys. If God decides what we get based strictly on the details that our Recording Angels (the two that follow us everywhere) totting up our good and bad deeds, how many of us will ever get anything wonderful in their Christmas stockings?

God is not bound to anything, unless He says so. And He has said, He has assured mankind time and time again that He loves us, however foolish and bad we have been acting. On the scale between God's Justice and God's Mercy, where does the balance lie? For God has also said that His Mercy is greater than His Wrath. People often asks for justice, and demand that justice be dispensed. But none of us will be able to match God's generosity, our good deeds for God's good blessings. So do not be so hasty to demand justice. On the scale of justice we will fall woefully short and heaven knows what we will find in our Xmas stocking... a lump of coal or perhaps a lump of sinner. Hehehe.

I wish you a Merry Christmas, for those celebrating this auspicious day. There are dogmatic difference between religions, but as my brother once said (quoting a book he alas cannot now recall the title of), "Your choice of bride is different from mine. But who am I to denigrate your choice and your bride?" - And when it comes to God, I know that we are all worshiping the same One God, however the Bride may be named, veiled or dressed. That is the beauty of the Oneness of God.

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
