Nothing is worth more than this day. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 18th and 19th century German poet and critic)
Some people have a nostalgic nature, and they’re always longing for the “good ole days.” Others are intent on planning and yearning for the future and a better life. In either case, as Goethe implies, they are missing out on the opportunity of today. There’s nothing we can do about the past, and the best we can do for the future is plan and pray. And those are today’s priorities.
We are the people [God] watches over… If only you would listen to his voice today! (Psalm 95:7).
