Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:1 (NKJV)
Many of us have great plans for the future, some even plan out their entire life. When we reach a certain age we will do this, and when we reach this age we will do that. However we dont even know if we’ll be here tomorrow. Currently under the world of Sin and Death, tomorrow is not guaranteed. God has never promised you will live 100 years in your mortal body
So when you understand this, this brings a whole new appreciation for life and a new perspective on your daily living. Many of us are so busy planning for the future , that we never live in the present. Many are planning for a future that will never happen. What if we lived everyday with great urgency? What if we lived as if the pages of our story do matter and will be recounted for?
Jesus echoed these words “Dont worry about tomorrow, for today has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) This has been my daily motto to get through life. Sometimes when we think to far ahead we can get ourselves to overwhelmed. Focus on today, get through the problems of today, enjoy the moments of today, make the most out of today!
Now I know many will say “Yet but what about eternal life in Jesus Christ?” Yes Gods eternal Kingdom is coming and is promised through Jesus Christ. However were stil lstuck in the “Old Earth” right now. We dont have our resurrected bodies yet, so were on limited time currently. The Early Church lived everyday as if Christ was going to return today. Perhaps we could use there insight and zeal, to be better prepared when Christ does return.
Dont let today pass you by without trying to embrace it, without trying to make a difference in someones life, without thanking God that you made it another day! Amen!
