Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond our reach. (Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, 18th & 19th century German writer and statesman)
In one sense, time is all we have to deal with. When it’s gone, it’s gone. It moves so fast that we have to discipline ourselves to use it wisely. As Goethe implies, it’s a great waste to think too much about the past. It’s also a waste to dream too much about the future; although, no one would deny the need for planning and preparation. The point: live today to its fullest!
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 2:13-14)
