But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:13
I have this verse on a card in my bathroom, and it’s such a great way to start the day by reading. It has one very simple instruction – encourage each other today. Just today. Not tomorrow, not next week, but just today. It’s so easy in our supremely future-oriented culture to forget about today and only think about tomorrow or next week or the next thing.
It takes intention to only think about today – to only deal with today’s problems and situations. I want to do a better job dealing with only today and not worrying about tomorrow. After all, we can only prepare for the future so much and beyond that, we can do nothing. We can only move from one day to the next, handling one day at a time.
I am going to try to do a better job focusing on just today and encouraging those around me. Who knows? It just may start to change my attitude and move me closer to contentment.
