DAILY DEVO....make today the main thing

It occurred to me as we were driving home this weekend from a weeks vacation that I was already thinking ahead. Before even reaching home from our 900 mile drive, I was already thinking ahead to events coming up. Planning for the days to come.

Have you ever thought that your days were just filled with getting thru one event to get to another?

We all keep busy schedules, sometimes too busy. Is it possible that our attention on tomorrow robs us of today?

Jesus said, “Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.” (Matthew 6:34).

Even though Jesus was speaking of worry in this passage, don't miss the principle that He gives: live in this moment and let the next moment be for the next moment.

In other words, don't let today's opportunities and blessings slip by because you are already thinking about tomorrow. Make the main thing "the main thing" every single day...

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” (Ecclesiastes 9:10)

Keep in mind that the main thing may be the very hand that God has given you at this very moment. Not tomorrow, next week or next year ... But today!

Wow! With school starting and the accompanying flurry of busyness, this was just what I needed to hear. Thanks for the poignant reminder. :-)
