For I’m already being poured out like a drink offering,
and the time has come for my departure.
I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith.
~2 Timothy 4:6-7 (NIV)~

Sharon Martin tripped in a hole and fell as she was going into the hospital Sunday morning for Elaine’s procedure. She is thankful she did not break anything.

“At the name of Jesus every knee should bow…” (Philippians 2:10).

BEFORE ENTERING THE broadcasting field, Jim Valvano led the North Carolina State University basketball team to a national championship…
Then cancer developed in his lower back. Invited to address the Duke University squad, Jim had this to say: “Life changes when you least expect it to. The future is uncertain. So, seize this day, seize this moment, and make the most of it.”
God gives us an urgent directive in Hebrews 3:13, “Exhort one another daily, while it is called ‘Today,’ lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” Why is there such a strong insistence on today?
It may be that today, this very day, could be the last one in our time here on earth. Today may be your last opportunity to obey God’s plan of salvation, or to share His love with a friend or loved one.
James has this warning about presuming upon our tomorrows: “You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (4:14).
Seize the opportunities that God gives you today. That’s sound advice-not just for basketball players, but for all of us. (Vernon C. Grounds)
