Your Good Deeds Are Your Best Friends.


Your Good Deeds Are Your Best Friends
A certain man had three friends: two of whom he loved dearly, the other he but lightly esteemed. It happened one day, that the king commanded his presence at court, at which he was greatly alarmed, and wished to procure an advocate. He went to the two friends, whom he loved. One flatly refused to accompany him, the other offered to go with him as far as the king’s gate, but no farther. Desperate, he called upon the third friend, whom he least esteemed; and that friend not only went willingly with him, but also so ably defended him before the king that he was honourably acquitted.
Similarly, every man has three friends, when Death summons him to appear before the Creator. His friend, whom he loves most, namely his money, cannot go with him a single step; his second, relations and neighbours, can only accompany him up to the cremation/burial ground, but cannot defend him before the Judge, while his third friend, whom he does not highly esteem — his good deeds — go with him before the king, and obtain his acquittal.
Each person is an artist that creates his own personality. His character creates the image that he presents to others. By our own deeds and thoughts, we can make this image of infinite beauty or we can make it ugly. Before it is to late, let us make good deeds our best friend.
“A man is known by three names. The first is the name which his parents give him; the second is the name by which others call him, and the third is the name by which he is identified in the true record of his life, from Birth to Death.” GOOD MORNING FRIENDS
