Today

In the Bible, we will find Jesus advising his disciples to begin the day with prayer. “Give us this day our daily bread”.

Act for today

The prayer asks only for today’s bread because today’s bread is the only kind of bread we can possibly eat.

The English reformer John Ruskin has on his desk a small piece of stone on which was inscribed one word- TODAY. No doubt, the future is Today. There is no tomorrow and the best possible way to prepare for tomorrow is to devote all attention with all our intelligence and enthusiasm on doing today’s work to the best possible extent by today itself.

This is the only possible way to get ready beforehand for the future. Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance but to do what lies clearly at hand. But often we neglect our work that lies clearly at hand and worry about the affair that lies dimly at a distance.

Negligence is more dangerous than ignorance. We neglect our work of today and think of the work of tomorrow which is nothing but an empty dream. Laziness and postponement are the real causes of this attitude and we must get rid of them at the earliest.

Let us remember that our trouble is not due to ignorance but due to inaction. This is the golden rule. We already know enough to lead perfect lives but we suffer because of our inaction. So, let us jump into action and enjoy a bright tomorrow.

Such good advice jaya.. Too often we overlook what can be achieved today, because we are too busy thinking about tomorrow..
