The Gift of Using Each Day as Precious

For Lord’s Day, June 27, 2021

Dear Saints,

Last Wednesday in our Prayer and Bible Study service, we enjoyed our study of Matthew 6:25-34 reviewing the sermon “Keep Changing How You Think” as an antidote to the sin of choosing anxious worrying about tomorrow. Remember the three points: Stop Your Stinking Thinking; Start Thinking Sweetly; You Are What You Think.

Afterward, our sister Debbie Raglin shared with me a wonderful nugget that so beautifully relates to the study in terms of not worrying about tomorrow but instead letting today be sufficient for today as Christ commands. I’d like to pass it on to you:

Cancer might rob you
of the blissful belief that
tomorrow stretches into forever.
In exchange,
you are granted the vision
to see each day as precious,
a gift to be used wisely and richly.
No one can take that away.

— National Cancer Institute

Don’t let worry about tomorrow rob you of your today, because today is a precious gift of God to be treasured and used wisely and richly.

Semper Reformanda,

Pastor Grant
