Give us today our daily bread. – Matthew 6:11 (NIV)
Let us face it. We easily become consumed with the matters of tomorrow. We worry about tomorrow. We fret over it.
The Word speaks about worrying about tomorrow:
- Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.- Matthew 6:34 (NIV)
- Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.- 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. – James 4:13-17 (NIV)
What about today?
God offers us today. We must make the most of today. We cannot neglect the importance of handling the matters at hand. We cannot afford to bypass what must be done today. Otherwise, any hopes for tomorrow are null and void. Handle today in an appropriate manner and manage your affairs accordingly.
Today’s challenges cause us to truly search our own souls. We must ask ourselves what we are living for moment by moment. We must question each and every move that we make. We must consider where everything fits in the big scheme of things. Let’s not lose sight of what we should do in His name, looking at Christ as our example of humility.
This is the day the Lord has made.We will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24 (NLT)
