The Power of Today

As I sit here this morning, looking out of my window onto my street, I have a single thought:

Today is powerful. 

One single day could change everything.

No, there’s nothing significant about this Thursday.

I mean that every day is powerful.

And you have one shot to get today right.

Each day I have the opportunity to do something… in this moment… or let it slip away.

It’s a simple thought. But perspective adds to the realization that today can’t be just another day.

So often we get lost in the busyness of doing what we need to do today that we forget that Jesus Christ has empowered his believers to measure each day differently.

Jesus measures your day differently than you do.

Today might not seem significant. But it is.

Today is a gift. And what you do with this day matters deeply to the one who made the hours we describe as a day.

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Matthew 22:36-39

What are you going to do today to Love God? What are you going to do today to Love your neighbors as yourself?

    O this is such a good line:

    ‘Jesus measures your day differently than you do.’

    … and you might add: in fact it is a measure of Jesus.
