Did you know that there are at least two days in every week that we should never worry about, two days
that should always be kept free from fear and apprehension?
One of these days is yesterday with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Why worry about yesterday since it has already passed beyond our control? Only God could turn back the
shadow on the sundial and reverse the process of time.
There is no blessing or benefit to be obtained through needless worry over the mistakes of a day that
has passed into eternity. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single
act once performed, we cannot erase a single word that was written or spoken. Yesterday is gone.
The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow with its possible adversaries, its burdens, its
greater problems and its increased dangers. It is a settled fact that most of those things pertaining to
tomorrow our immediate control. Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask
of clouds. Therefore, until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unbom.
This leaves only one day -today. Any man can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and
I add the burdens of those two awful eternities – yesterday and tomorrow – that we break down. It is not the
expenence of today that drives men med. It is remorse or bittemess for something which happened
yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.
“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.
GRACE OR WORKS?
“And if by grace, then it is no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” Romans 1 1:6.
The choice is ours to make, but we should make it based on God’s truth. If we expect to get “in” (the family of God and ultimately into Heaven), we must accept God’s grace. If we decide to work it “out” on our own, that’s exactly where we will be- out of hope, out of the family of God and outside of Heaven.
If we try to work our way “in,” we will be disappointed because we are not capable of working our way “in.”
“For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”
“Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
