There's plenty of reasons today is important.
There's the overly-said reasons like,
"Every day is a gift from God,"
"Today is the "present".....which makes it a gift."
"Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
But, there's also some other reasons why today is important.
Today is important because everything that happens in the next twenty-four hours will affect everything that happens in the next one hundred years.
Today is important because decisions made today will affect attitudes and actions of tomorrow and the next day.
Today is important because there are people whose paths we will cross once in a lifetime and some of them may be heading our way this very day.
Today is important because the devil will be against us and God will be for us, and we get to choose sides in a spiritual battle that started at the beginning of time and won't end until Jesus returns.
When I think about all the reasons today matters,
I realize trying to hide from it just won't work.
I've been called to live fully today.
You have too.
So whether you'll spend the day at home or at work,
be keenly aware of God's presence in your every action and your every word.
He is the Creator of your today,
and what He creates always means something bigger and better than we could ever imagine.
This is the day that the Lord has made,
let us rejoice and be glad in it!
