'DO NOT BOAST ABOUT TOMORROW, FOR YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A DAY MAY BRING FORTH.' PROVERBS 27:1 NIV
In The Finishing Touch Chuck Swindoll writes, 'The plane was headed for New York a routine, normally very boring flight. But this time it proved to be otherwise. As they were on their descent pattern the pilot realized that the landing gear was not engaging. He messed around with the controls, trying again and again to get the gear to lock in place...without success. He then asked ground control for instructions. As the plane circled the landing field and emergency crews coated the runway with foam, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles moved into position. Meanwhile the passengers were told to maneuver in that calm, unemotional voice pilots do so well. Flight attendants glided about the cabin with an air of cool reserve. Passengers were told to place their heads between their knees and grab their ankles just before impact. There were tears, panic and cries of despair. Then when the landing was only minutes away the pilot suddenly announced over the intercom, “We are beginning our final descent. At this moment, in accordance with international aviation code established at Geneva, it is my obligation to inform you that if you believe in God you should commence prayer.” Scouts' honor...that's exactly what he said.'
So what's the message? 'Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.' Live each day in the light of eternity. Seize the moment and bring every drop out of it. Love and enjoy the people who matter. Take another step towards you goals and the fulfillment of God's plan for your life. In other words, before you die, live!
