The comic strip Family Circus featured a little guy being tucked into bed. Looking out his window into the darkness he said to his mother, “Mommy, how do we know tomorrow will be another day? That’s a pretty good question for all to consider. The quick answer is, “We don’t” and entering a new year, we all need to remember that there is no guarantee that “tomorrow will be another day,” for us. Jesus, once spoke of a rich farmer who leaving God out of his life, laid up material things for himself, planning to “eat, drink and be merry.” In other words, he planned a comfortable retirement. But in that parable, God told the man that he was being foolish, because that very night he would die. Solomon warned, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” But with an uncertain future, how wonderful for those properly related to the Heavenly Father, through faith in Jesus Christ, to be able to say, “God alone is my refuge. He is my God, and I trust in Him,” in 2015.
