Proverbs 27:1  
Don’t boast about tomorrow, 
for you don’t know what a day might bring. (CSB)

Don’t brashly announce what you’re going to do tomorrow; 
you don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. (MSG)

Advance planning is wise. Prognosticating guaranteed outcomes is not. 

This proverb has been part of my Friday prayer list for forty years. It is a regular reminder not to live for the weekend despite the many songs encouraging us to do just that.

These wise words help keep me focused on today. Today, right now, is the only time we really live. We can’t live tomorrow or relive yesterday. We can make the most of this moment’s opportunity. 

* What does this present moment make possible? 
* What can we accomplish right now? 
* What could be done? 
* What should be done? 
* What will be done?

Yesterday’s travels brought me to Indianapolis. Last week’s work prepared me for the meetings I will attend today and tomorrow. Last night, I remembered one thing I forgot to prepare for. Oops. 

So, I will begin my day with unforced urgency. Fortunately, the task at hand is simply completed. Today’s scramble will serve as a firm reminder of what not to do next time. Evaluated experience, you may have heard, is a really good teacher.

How can we make the most of this moment?

I will live fully present in each moment.

Our Father, thank you for graciously reminding us to walk with you moment by moment. Thank you for helping us not get ahead of ourselves. Thank you for reminding us that we cannot relive our yesterdays. Thank you for giving us grace for here and now. Amen.
