ONE DAY AT A TIME

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

ONE DAY AT A TIME

ONE DAY AT A TIME SWEET JESUS
IS ALL I AM ASKING OF YOU
-Gospel song

We have to live one day at a time,
but we are living it for eternity in that
one day.
-anonymous

Look to this day for it is life…..
Yesterday is but a dream
and tomorrow only a vision…
-Kalidas

Comment:

Today, nay this present moment is what we are certain we have.
We do not know what will happen the next moment. Death is the
only certainty. Then let us live today as if it was our last and as Gandhiji, that saintly soul puts “Live as if you will die today, but work as if you will live forever.”
Working for Eternity means: loving your neighbour as you love yourself.
That is: Do unto others as you will have them do to you. Working as
if you will live forever means; shun idleness and procrastination, choose
the work that you love and can do well, and give it your best. If you
love your work, you will enjoy a perpetual holiday, and you will have
freedom from stress and anxiety. After all it is health of body and peace of mind we want most in life, and if we can get it with love in our hearts and just the bare necessities for life and living, it is worth the while.
