Today

“Do not squander time, for that is the stuff that life is made of” — Ben Franklin . I was praying this morning, thinking about this day.  How God made it the basic unit of time. (“there was evening, there was morning, one day”, Genesis 1)  I was thinking how satisfying it would be if I could focus my expectations and energies on just the next 24 hours.  What would happen if tomorrow I could report to the Lord that today I looked up,  didn’t worrry, served others, was generous with my time and my words.   And isn’t life, ultimately,  just the aggregate of many days?  When I pray the Lord’s prayer, I ask Him to give me what I need. I am wondering what life would be like if I gave Him what He deserved . . .just for today.

  1. Your message today makes me remember Matthew 6:34, “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (NASB). When I think of all that is happening in my life and this world, I remember this verse and know that God will take care of me today and tomorrow but that I should remember he has a plan for me and each day I need to pick up my cross and follow him, laying my troubles at his feet.

  2. Thank you so much for committing part of your 24 hours so that ours can be so blessed. I pray to take this as a living example of how I too should dedicate my 24. Today is the day the Lord has given us. Only He knows what tomorrow will bring.
