Just For Today…
© 2013

Stephen A. Peterson

A cable television network aired a 1950’s, Rod Serling “Twilight Zone” broadcast featuring the late actor, Ed Wynn, as a salesman. The salesman was visited by an angel who informed him he had twenty-four hours before his death. Rather than prepare himself, he attempted, by every means, to escape. Though it might appear he would fool the angel thus God, the tricks did not work. At the appointed hour, he and the angel of death walked calmly down the street to what some might refer to as his “new and everlasting life”.

What if a person approached you this very moment to inform you that this day would be your last? What would you do? Would you try to avoid the person’s message? Or, as many do today, ignore any existence of an afterlife, heaven, hell, God.

Philosophers and thinkers today and in yesteryears have cautioned us to live each day as though it would be our last. For every second, every minute, every hour, there is eternity in it. So starting this day consider that each day is your last. Surely, we are able to do anything for a day. So, just for this day, let us not be afraid of life, not be afraid of death that is a reflection of life; not be afraid to be happy, to enjoy the beauty that flourishes all around us; to believe the best. Just for this day let us live one day only. Forget about yesterday and who hurt you, lied to you or what you failed to do. Likewise, forget about tomorrow for tomorrow may not be yours. Try not to solve every existent problem of life at once. For it has been said that a person is just as happy as he or she makes up their mind to be.

So just suppose we decide to be happy just for this day and adjust ourselves to what is—our life, our relationships, our health, our station in life. To try to force the world to suit our beliefs and values is an enormous order never realized. If we cannot get what we like nor have our way, perhaps we can appreciate what we have regardless of how much or how little. For those who whine and cry about what they do not have, do not deserve what they do have.

So, just for today, let us be charitable, respectful, cheerful, responsive, delightful, prayerful; do our best, dress our best, praise other people for what they do, not be jealous of what they have or covet what is theirs, walk confidently, do not be critical for what they cannot do. And if you discover fault, be forgiving, forget and go forward. When your message comes, so will your crown!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
