No. 30 The Real Now

So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:34

God loves reality. He hates lies because of the way they distort it. God likes reality to be pure and clean and true, like a fragrant pink spring rosebud.

Reality only resides in the ‘now’ zone. Memories distort reality and of course worrying about tomorrow does too. Worries about tomorrow are no more real than fairy tales and Star Wars. Don’t get God and me wrong, make-believe is fun! Stories, whether in books or on film, are very entertaining. But reality is God’s story and it is the most interesting, the most complex, and of course, the most interactive story ever.

Ask any sniper how important it is to stay focused and not to think about the future, even what you will eat for dinner, or the past, even about who hurt your feelings yesterday. Snipers, like aspiring immortals must focus on the real true mark now!

Jesus doesn’t want us to worry, but for Christ’s sake let’s only worry about the real matters of today.
