Make the Most of Today

"The purpose of life is to listen -- to yourself, to your neighbor, to your world and to God and, when the time comes, to respond in as helpful a way as you can find . . . from within and without". (Fred Rogers) Each day is a gift and we need to try to use as such.

So the scripture that tells us to "Choose you this day whom ye will serve; . . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord", (Joshua 24:15) makes it very clear. Not tomorrow, not when we get good and ready, not when it is convenient -- but "this day," -- now, today, we must choose whom we will serve and make it clear in the way we live.

I think that is a very liberating thought. It's so easy to be stuck dwelling on past mistakes, or stressing over the future.
