What Does Tomorrow Hold

When we wake up in the morning, we go through our routines of getting ready for the day, not thinking of anything but the norm for whatever the day has in store for us. We go to work or school or wherever, and we do not think for a moment that this may be our last day. However for some it will be. When we leave for the day and kiss our children or our spouse good-bye. We do not think this is the last time I will kiss you. We do not think that this really is good-bye until we meet again in Heaven. Yet for some it will be.

We should live each day as if Jesus was coming for us tomorrow. Maybe not for all of us, but maybe just each person himself. We can not worry about what tomorrow holds for us. We should live as if we only have today. Be kind, compassionate, loving toward each other. Not just to our loved ones but to everyone. That is the lesson Jesus is trying to teach us. The same lesson He tried to teach His disciples while He was here on earth with them. It is called love. It is the greatest commandment. To love your God with all your heart mind and soul, and then the second is the same, to love your neighbor the same. Who is your neighbor? Everyone. To truly love someone with the love Jesus has for us is not always easy. But it is not a suggestion, it is a commandment from GOD Himself.

We are not always lovable, sometimes we may not even be likeable, but Jesus loved us anyway. We are to do the same. Don't let the sun go down without telling someone you love them, don't let the sun go down without helping someone besides yourself that day. Don't let the sun go down without sharing the love of Christ with at least one person.

Romans 14 v 7-8......For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the LORD, and if we die, we die to the LORD. Therefore, whether we live or die; we are the LORD's.......

Our thoughts and prayers are with our friend today as she mourns the loss of her husband. Who just like the rest of us, just got up that morning went to work, and then had an accident on the way home. She didn't know that she would not tell her husband good night that night, when she left for work that day. Nor do you know that you will be given a second chance or another opportunity to tell someone you love them.

Live like Christians, Live like Christ lives in you, love others like Christ loves you. Don't let the world steal your joy. Don't let the world influence how you live. Let Christ who lives in you, be your greatest influence. AMEN!

RTB.....Numbers 14-16.....
