One Day at a Time

Boston Times

JESUS said: "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."

It seems impossible not to give some thought to the future, and without doubt one of the most important things in this line is to note that the success, prosperity, the general welfare of the future depends largely, if not exclusively, on our taking good care of the present. He who does not take to-day's steps to-day cannot take to-morrow's steps tomorrow, but on the morrow will be obliged to take to-day's steps. If a link should be dropped out of the chain, we would find ourselves obliged to go back and replace it, in order that the chain may be unbroken. To-morrow's work can never be done to-day, for we have not yet reached it. We cannot even determine accurately to-day what we will do to-morrow, hence the wisdom of James's words: "For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that."
