STOP AND THINK – Yesterday is ashes, tomorrow wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. (Eskimo Proverb)
Common ideas couched in new expressions help us see reality more clearly—like this Eskimo proverb. Of course, everyone knows that yesterday is gone with its heartaches and joys. Tomorrow holds promise, but it hasn’t arrived yet. So, all we have is today, and that should be enough. Today is the only day we can accomplish anything, so just do it!
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2)
