T he letter I received from a man in Southwest Africa brightened my day. In spite of the violence in his homeland and serious financial problems, he’s learned the value of starting each day thankful to be alive, choosing to enjoy the beauty of the morning rather than focus on fears about what may come his way before nightfall. In doing so, he’s following the advice of Jesus who said we’re to live one day at a time (Matthew 6:34).
Millions will spoil today fretting over tomorrow, even though most of their expected tragedies will never arrive. No one has information enough about the future to worry intelligently and encouraging encounters with positive people often appear in time to turn our minds from fear to faith.
