One thing that 9/11 taught us is that tomorrow is not promised!
If only we could apply that line of thinking to other areas of our life. The truth from the 9/11 tragedy is some of us now realize that the nice cars, big homes, fancy clothes, big diamonds, lavish trips and more, are here today and gone tomorrow. Maybe we have come to understand, as the Apostle John came to understand, that serving God is much more important than honoring our own desires. “For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:16-17)
We mourn for the families of that tragic day and pray for them. But may this tragic day be a reminder to us that our life on this earth is short. What are we doing with our today? If TODAY ends for you, where will you spend eternity?
