It’s a special day for Bahá’ís around the world today as we remember The Báb.
His life and the spiritual revolution in its story was my first encounter with the Revelation of the Bahá’í Faith.
From those earliest days, these words of The Báb’s have traveled with my grateful heart:
“O peoples of the world! Whatsoever ye have offered up in the way of the One True God, ye shall indeed find preserved by God, the Preserver, intact at God’s Holy Gate.”
Every sparrow, every hair of our head, every feather and seed and blade of grass is accounted for.
Imagine the real spiritual presence of each one of our willing efforts and actions.
It can be easy, in these hours and days, to feel dismayed by the world as we see it around us.
But the building of the good is what is preserved — the increase and advance of love in the coming forth of what is of God.
