Today is a Gift
Today and every day, we are given the opportunity to make the most of the things that God offers to us. Whether it's time with family, impacting our community, improving our minds, taking charge of that procrastination list, resting or perhaps spending some alone time with God, make it an amazing experience. Seize the day. We should take every moment, every opportunity to be better than we were yesterday. Ecclesiastes 5: 18-20 MSG "After looking at the way things are on this earth, here’s what I’ve decided is the best way to live: Take care of yourself, have a good time, and make the most of whatever job you have for as long as God gives you life. And that’s about it. That’s the human lot. Yes, we should make the most of what God gives, both the bounty and the capacity to enjoy it, accepting what’s given and delighting in the work. It’s God’s gift! God deals out joy in the present, the now. It’s useless to brood over how long we might live." Sometimes we may need to remind ourselves to be thoughtful and kind to us too. Have fun, be silly, laugh often and every single day. Make the most of whatever it is that we are doing. Make it a daily goal to be a better person today than we were yesterday. Find the joy, look for the beauty, discover the bounty and and then enjoy every moment. Yesterday is over, tomorrow isn't here yet, but today...today is a gift from God.
