If we want to get the most out of our day, I suggest these three things:
1. CONCENTRATE ON RESPONSIBILITIES AND NOT RIGHTS.
It's an imperfect world, and we won't always be treated fairly; that's just a fact of life today. If we want to go far, travel light spiritually; we need to release and unload our resentments!
Paul says in Philippians 4:8 " . . . you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious - the best, not the worst . . . "
2. SPEND TIME WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE.
The only difference in what we are now and what we'll be five years from now is the books we read and the company we keep.
Henry Ford once said, "My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me."
So what do your friends bring out in you?
Solomon said in Proverbs 13:2 "He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed."
3. MAKE TODAY THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE.
When Shirley Temple asked her mother what the happiest moment in her life was, she replied, "Right now."
"But what about the day you were married?" Shirley asked.
Her mother said, "My happiest moment then was then, but my happiest moment now is now. You see, you can live only in the moment you're in, so to me that's the happiest moment."
That's a great answer!
Lamentations 3:23 His mercies are new every morning.
Psalm 68:19 He daily loadeth us with benefits.
That means we should get up every day and announce Psalm 118:24 "This is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it."
