The First Day of the Rest of Your Life
Above are the words to a song I heard a long time ago. Every now and then one hears some simple little statement which jars him into thinking of life more seriously. Such is the case with this statement. We can't do anything to change the past. We can affect the future only by what we plan and DO today - for today is the first day of the rest of our life!
God has graciously given to each of us a measure of health, wealth, and opportunity. What are we going to do with these blessings TODAY? "SOMEDAY" may never come. But TODAY is here RIGHT NOW. The message of the gospel is "TODAY if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts..."; "NOW is the accepted time...NOW is the day of salvation."
TODAY is the most important day of your life, for it is the "first day of the rest of your life." Make the most of it by yielding your life to Christ through obedience to His will.
