Beginning a new day
It's the beginning of a new day. A night of rest and once more we begin our lives.
In the last 24 hours much around us has changed. In Oklahoma more than 50 people are dead from a terrible tornado. The day before that storm they awoke to their new day having no idea what was ahead for them in just 24 hours.
Our lives are lived in 24 hour moments....a day at a time. Each new day is an opportunity to live for God because it may be the last of your days.....today may be your final morning on planet earth!
So, how to use it...how should we spend our days as if they were our last? Many face that as they hear the news of cancer with only weeks to live. As one friend wrote yesterday, "when death is imminent life becomes much sweeter."
So in the beginning of a new day resolve to do two things well, 1. love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and 2. love people.
If you will make that your "to do" list for the day, even if it might be your last day, you will do well.
