Today

There are questions that come forth about “What will happen -when or if- this or that comes true as predicted or speculated?”

While these questions can be useful up to a point, it is best for them to be the last questions to ask.  The better question always to ask is a question for us to best ask ourselves, because we ourselves are the ones that know the answers.

“What are we doing TODAY to bring forth the Christ Spirit in our lives and the lives of those we come in contact with?”  As Jesus said, “Do not worry about tomorrow.  Let tomorrow worry about itself.  Deal with today.” Matthew 6:25-34.

The questions of today are way more important to ask. Whether we brought pain and suffering to someone or whether we helped lift someone up, the question is here to ask.

Who is in our life that needs understanding and compassion, TODAY?
or Who were we rude to, or mean to or hurtful to, TODAY?
Who needs a kind word, TODAY?
or Who were we judgmental towards, TODAY?
Who can we forgive TODAY?
or Who’s life did we add pain and suffering to, TODAY?
Who can we show mercy towards TODAY?
or Who did we insult or show disrespect – TODAY?
Who can we pray for, TODAY?
or Who did we hate, TODAY?
Who can we help, TODAY?
Who needs our patience, TODAY?
Who needs gentle kindness, TODAY?
Who did we give a demonstration of love to, TODAY?

If it’s the future or phenomenon, or drama, or amazing and strange earthly occurances that we seek, then these are here today and gone tomorrow.  We more often treat them only as entertainment – and not anything that sways beliefs or actions. But, the acts of understanding, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, mercy and love are the miracles that are capable of changing – lifting up – lives, forever.
