"Wasting Today"

"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

I am one of those people who scrape the bowl and lick the beaters when I bake a cake.  I will put a little water in the bottom of a shampoo bottle to get all of it out.  I try not to leave any residue of anything in a container (if I can help it) whether it is makeup, mustard or perfume.  I like to "squeeze all the goody" out of it.  I want to get every last drop of it. 

We need to be like that with our days.  Get all that we can out of them.  Not leave one hour, minute or second behind without using it to the fullest and enjoying every "drop" of it.  But that won't happen as long as we are constantly thinking about tomorrow.  We talk a lot about how our past can rob from our present by thinking about it so much,  but our tomorrow can rob from our today if we are focused on it.  If we are so busy thinking about tomorrow, we will miss what there is for us today.  God has blessed us with today.  Tomorrow may never come.

Most people spend their time worrying about tomorrow before it even gets here.  Others spend today thinking about what they want to do or plan to do tomorrow and it hasn't arrived yet, in addition tomorrow is subject to chance before it does get here.

Live today.  Enjoy today.  Take advantage of today.  Use today wisely.  Glorify God today.  Fulfill His plan and will for you today.  Spend every last second of today on today, don't waste any one-- they are all precious and valuable.  Squeeze all of the goody out of today.  As for tomorrow, enjoy it when it gets here.  Don't worry about it today and let it rob from today.

Have a great day.  Don't rob from today by thinking about tomorrow.  Enjoy every last "drop" of today.
