The Time to Live is Today

When her sister died unexpectedly, Ann Wells helped her brother-in-law search through her wardrobe to find something special to bury her in. They discovered some exquisite silk lingerie still wrapped in tissue. Ann’s brother-in-law said she’d purchased this in New York shortly after they got married, but she’d never worn it because she wanted to keep it for a special occasion. They took it out of the drawer ready to take to the funeral director, and then he slammed the drawer shut and said to Ann: “Don’t ever save anything for a special occasion. Every day you are alive is a special occasion.”
That reminds me of something the Bible says, “Don’t boast about tomorrow because you don’t know what a day will bring forth.” Wise people make provision for the future, but they don’t live in it. The time to live is today.
