Living Today for Tomorrow

 It's the paper you pushed on till 3am to finish because you wanted an A instead of a B. It's the math homework you finished the last problem on because you wanted to go the extra mile and get 100% rather than a 90. It's saying "Wow! I'm so proud of you!" and giving your child a genuine smile and hug when they show you their latest drawing, to show them you want to be actively involved in their life. It's the listening to someone to show them you care when they're struggling, and crying with them because you've allowed yourself to be put in their shoes so you can understand their pain.  It's the taking a little time out of "your day" to talk to and inspire someone who looks up to you. It's pushing past your pride to say something nice to someone who has hurt you. It's holding your temper when your toddler has broken your favorite ceramic mixing bowl. It's pushing past your laziness to read your Bible, and begin praying to God even when you don't feel like it.

What is?

  •  The little choices you make in your day. They are the things that will "make or break" your future, who you are, and who you become. 

"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." (Matthew 6:34 KJV)
