Today is more than a square on a calendar. It’s an adventure . . . a quest for character that may determine your destiny. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

Calendars are part of normal life for just about everybody. Whether it’s hanging on the wall by your desk or recorded on your portable device, it’s always there to tell you what’s coming up on your schedule. But Swindoll encourages us to see every day not just as time to schedule events and appointments, but as a gift to be used to learn and experience: simply, to grow.

I am teaching you today—yes, you— so you will trust in the Lord (Proverbs 22:19).
