Yesterday is ashes, tomorrow wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. (Eskimo Proverb)

As we grow older, we tend to become more nostalgic. We long for the “good old days,” and we rehash the good memories, probably forgetting the less pleasant experiences. Others of us, perhaps the younger ones, are concentrated on the future, concerned about what may or may not happen. Both extremes rob us of today’s opportunities. Work your plan today.

How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone (James 4:14).
