Guru Ji on his travels stopped off at Mithankote. Mian Mitha a well known holy man heard that Guru Nanak Dev Ji had come so he went to meet with him. Mian Mitha sat by guru Ji and asked " Tell me whom does god like?"
"in his court , rich and poor, high and low, king and cobbler, all are alike. He who is true to the core and humble and loving of heart, gains the favour of God. The great men of this world are like elephants who trumpet in the pride of their own strength and throw dust over their own heads. They lie in dust when death overtakes them. Good men are like birds fluttering in the air, full of joy, content with the little that god provides."
