Inscription on John Wayne’s headstone: “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learnt something from yesterday.”
Yesterday, I was worrying about all the things I needed to do today. Today, I can’t even remember what all those things were, and why I was so troubled. I’m still finding myself worrying about tomorrow perhaps because it’s a mystery. I guess I’m stuck in the world where tomorrow is more important than today, but everything that was going to happen today, happened, and everything that will happen tomorrow may or may not come to be. So, why worry about tomorrow, for today we are alive, and tomorrow is an unknown, when we awake tomorrow will be today.
It’s interesting to view our world in the perspective of yesterday, a year ago, or even a century ago, because history is our teacher and the lens in which we shape our tomorrows. If we all could learn from our yesterdays; then, our tomorrows would always be sunny and bright. Our Yesterdays shows us our future, but we wish and plan for different outcomes, which mostly never transpire.
Of all the people in this world who deal in tomorrows, leader’s politicians, and governments. Our earnest desire would be, they of all the people in the world would have understood the warnings from our yesterdays. It seems they cannot see past today and commit us to tomorrows filled with atrocities and horrors of kingdoms from our yesterdays.
The only tomorrow that will bring true happiness and eventual peace to this world will be the day Christ returns. His government on this earth will mean every tomorrow will be as great as every yesterday was, and every today will be spent in the shadow of our loving and powerful God, Jesus Christ.
