One of the worst mistakes we can make is to neglect today. Today holds so many golden opportunities for us to make an impact on those in our immediate circle, our community, our nation and our world. That's because "tomorrow today will be yesterday."
Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and Benjamin Franklin seized every day to work on their inventions. They were successful because they did not give up. They made every day count. They knew they couldn't put off what they needed to do. They knew that the present day would be history the next day.
According to Deuteronomy 30:11, "Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach."
We should consider today a present or a gift from God. Our present of today will be the past tomorrow. We can say it three ways with the same meaning:
Live for today. Live well today. Give all you can to this day! Don't miss any opportunities today. Today is ours; tomorrow might not be.
Can you look in the mirror tonight and honestly say you have done all you could have done today?
