Could That Be Teaching?

I have a friend, who doesn't believe in God. Today, he said "Thank God there are people like you!" Could that mean that I've actually managed to do some teaching?

You know, the reality of Swedish custody law looks like a scrapbook from hell. Pointless to deal with it unless you can bring some light from the Faith with you.

People who admire believers, who say that they are lucky enough to have faith, do have faith themselves, but they do not know, and they need to discover this by themselves, and it's an extraordinary experience that awaits them.

Well, I know why he said so - it's because I deal with very complicated custody issues, and I actually do it because of the Faith. That's why I mentioned it.

Yes that is teaching, the way Abdul'baha asks us to do it

Leading by example can often be the best form of teaching
