Today and That Day

It's been a while since I posted anything here.  I've been busy with quite a few things both at work and here at home - working to get the car situation settled.  So I thought I'd leave you all with some quotes I was reading through today to hopefully encourage you to live this day in light of the eternal.

"He who provides for this life but takes no care for eternity is wise for a moment but a fool forever." - John Tillotson

"It ought to be the business of every day to prepare for our last day." - Matthew Henry

"There are two days on my calendar - Today and That Day." - Martin Luther

Let us all live, not looking for human praise, but for the praise of our Heavenly Father when He says, "Well done, good and faithful servant." - Matthew 25:21

"For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." - 2 Peter 1:5-11
