There are rocks on many seashores. Huge waves constantly dash against these rocks but the rocks remain firm. You must be like those boulders. You may be constantly bombarded by worldly problems, but your faith in God must remain firm like a rock. That is true devotion. You may give up everything but never give up God! Never Forget God! Engrave this truth in your heart. That will protect you in every possible way.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
