TOMORROW, TODAY'S FUTURE

by CharlesRobey
(Trussville, AL USA)



Tomorrow is when nothing is new under the sun.
Tomorrow is when vanity of vanities is not yet begun
Tomorrow is when yesterday's hope was the past.
Tomorrow is when today's hope will be done at last.
Tomorrow is when promises are always to be broken.
Tomorrow is when our deeds are only to be spoken.
Tomorrow is when to put it off is always taboo.
Tomorrow is when fingers are pointed to the "who."
Tomorrow is when putting it off is a very big mistake.
Tomorrow is when not doing it becomes a big fake.
Tomorrow is when putting it off the battle is not won.
Tomorrow is when putting it off leaves the job undone.
Tomorrow is when our final home is not down here.
Tomorrow is when our final home is away up there.

"Come now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit' - yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:13-14)

A store proprietor once posted a sign which read, "Free groceries tomorrow." Obviously, tomorrow never arrived, as tomorrow always becomes today. So why is tomorrow even in the dictionary?

So how is the word "tomorrow" used in Christian circles? Scripture tells us that our citizenship is not in this world, but in the one to come. (Philippians 3:20-21) Rather than worrying about today's secular lifestyle, going to such and such, or doing thus and thus, we ought to always be in a prayerful mindset. (James 4:15-16)

So, in considering the age-old vernacular of "tomorrow," and also using the spiritual interpolation that "tomorrow is not in our hands," no one actually knows what tomorrow will bring, The only sure thing is that tomorrow turns into today. So today is the day of salvation. (II Cor. 6:2) Simply be ready for when tomorrow's reality actually comes.

So let us trust God with our todays, as we can surely trust God with our eternity. (John 3:36) (Revelation 20:12-15) Amen

AUTHOR'S POSTSCRIPT

A continual looking forward to the eternal world is not a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do. (CS Lewis)

"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."(Philippians 3:13-14)
