Let us begin. Mother Teresa had a profound little saying “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” Whilst this little quote sounds simple, it is layered with meaning.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Creation was a purposeful act of God and all of life has immense value. God created ‘today’ as a gift which is crowning with all sorts of opportunities and possibilities. God has graciously made us the custodians of our time every day and gives us the responsibility to engage with this gift in a way that honours the value of the gift. Today when you contemplate your day, how will you begin? ‘Let us begin’ means we give consideration to what God places in our hand as we scan the horizons of a fresh day. ‘Let us begin’ means we will not waste today, even if we feel constrained by circumstances. Today we can be intentional in how we love Jesus and serve others. We all start with the same gift. So, what is the music you will play on the strings of today? Will you play? How will you play and leave the unique hallmark of what God has placed in your hand today? Will you begin? What will your life-song be today? Let us begin.
So, friends, get your ‘today’ on.
Best days to come
