Daily Digest #84

Be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. —Matthew 24:44

We always fear what lies ahead. But no matter how much we worry and plan things ahead, there is no assurance that we will even be there. We can only trust that God will be there. Not that we are discouraged to have goals in life, but we are constantly reminded that we ought to keep depending on Him. We may know or do many things, but it is through his grace and power that we have all these. This also serves as a reminder that everything in this life is temporary, and that we should rather be investing on the eternal.

I learned several important things from today's passage: to make the most of our life TODAY. To spread the love. To show kindness to every person we meet. To be a reflection of God's glory, and to see Him in others, too.

For this, let us pray. May we keep looking up to God. May we not ignore or be stubborn to His teachings. May we never fail to count our blessings, give praise and worship to God and truly repent for our sins. May we remember that God loves each of us, and is with us... everywhere and every time. May our lives be a reflection of God's love. Pray always.
