The Gift of Today
One of the greatest keys to contentment is to realize that life is a gift, not a right! - Sparks
Stripped of all he owned and his health, Job still held his integrity for God. His love was rewarded. Wow!
Have you ever thought about the beauty of a gift? They are hand-picked by the giver to bless and aid the recipient. The gift of Today is upon us. Most people will enter it without much thought, as if they deserved it, and if events don’t flow smoothly they’ll become disgruntled and unhappy. But the truth is God has granted all of us this day, He has granted us our life to this point, not because we deserve it or have earned it, but because He loves us. When you look at it from this point of view life can’t get any better. As you make your way through Today, problems or not, unwrap your gift with care.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him?” – Psalm 8:3-4
