This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
“How many days till Christmas?”
Isn’t that a child’s #1 question this time of year?
Where would they ever get the idea to wish this day away and hope for one to come?
I’m going to wager a guess it might be from the adults around them. You know the folks who look forward to Friday, or teachers whose calendars mark the days until summer, or grandparents counting down to retirement.
We all do it. Maybe it helps to have a date out on the horizon to get through the pain, despair, loneliness, and drudgery of today.
But if tomorrow doesn’t come?
Do you know the day that matters most to God?
Give us this day…Today if you hear his voice…Today is the day of salvation.
You have today. Enjoy it. Revel in it. Live in it. Give thanks for it.
PRAYER: Thank you God for today. This day. Keep me here to live to your glory and honor. Amen
