Be intent upon the perfection of the present day. (William Law, 17th century Church of England priest)
We often look back at past experiences and regret that we didn’t do better. We get caught up in the “what if …” On the other hand, we may be tempted to look to the future with determination to make every experience the very best we can. Both may have some limited value, but as Law points out, it’s the present that we have to be intentional about. Work hard today to do your best.
Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do. (Proverbs 6:4).
