Sunsets can be absolutely beautiful, but their beauty is a constant reminder, that an end is coming. If you are reading this today, God has blessed you with life; sometimes we take our life and liberties for granted, expecting that we have another opportunity in the morning. But as you see the sun setting in a persons life, you can only wonder how they feel about how they spent their day.
Seconds turn into minutes, minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days, days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, and months turn into years. As the years roll by, how are we preparing for our sunset. Are we waiting for tomorrow to do what God has called us to do today. Are we waiting for “Oneday”, when all of the stars align, and everything is in place.
As I look at a calendar, I see Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but I don’t see “Oneday”. “Oneday” will never come.
I’ve been told that the most valuable property on earth, are graveyards, because graveyards are full of dreams, goals, and visions for great accomplishments, but the resident was waiting for “Oneday” to pursue them; but “Sunset” came first.
The Word of God (Psalms 118:24) tells us that “This is the day, that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it”. This reminds me of the importance of “today”, rejoicing in today, but preparing for our impending “Sunsets”.
