We know time passes by and also carries the opportunities with it.
We have today with us, we know the truth or at least if we are still searching for it, we can pray 'that God may reveal Himself to us today'.
We might have different goals in our lives, however the best destination to reach is what the Lord God intends for us, for as I said we only know our past and our present, however God knows our tomorrow and our life ahead.
Would it not be wise and blessed if we follow the Lord and reach where He intends us to.
Jesus in the verse above seeing the rigidity, closeness and self righteousness of the Pharisees said to them 'and where I am you cannot come.', however if we humbly yield to our Lord's command which He gives with a desire to bless us, will we not hear....
