If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today? (Steve Jobs, late co-founder of Apple, Inc.)
Some of us live by a rather strict schedule. We know what’s coming ahead in our daily agenda. Others are pretty spontaneous, hardly giving much thought or planning to the day’s schedule. But to take Jobs’ question seriously could radically change how we go through our day. We would no doubt have peace at the end of that last day, if we had planned and lived it well.
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).
