Today, Not Tomorrow

Sometimes it is so easy to fall into the trap of thinking everything will be better when we rid our self of some real or imagined pain, or a certain debt will be paid in full, or our relationship with another will be healed and on and on.  John 4:35 reads “Say not ye, there are yet four months, and then cometh harvest?  behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”  To me, that means thinking my every need is met right here, right now.  Luke 12:32 states “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  Nowhere in that verse does it say later or hereafter!

Today, I will be aware and stay in the present, knowing all is well today!

Tares and Wheat

While reading about the tares and the wheat in Matthew 13:24-30, it is brought to one’s attention that the tares are not destroyed until the harvest.  “Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest, I will say to the reapers, ‘First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn'”.

The tares are totally separate from the wheat just as we mature Spiritually, any unChristlike trait just falls away and has nothing to do with our True Being and it never did have.  Isn’t God Good?
