Sam and I went to the St Bartholomaus Dom (Cathedral) in Frankfurt and took this photo of the statues in the nave. The light was coming through the window at just the right angle to land on the thief on the cross. It reminded me of when he asked Jesus to remember him when he came into his Kingdom and Jesus replied, “Today, you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43). It made me think of the immediacy of the day . . . of today .. . this day (not tomorrow) is the day to get sorted with God. Tomorrow may never come. It also speaks to me of the efficiency of God – He can get things sorted immediately, quickly, swifly. He does not procrastinate, unlike myself.
This is a thumbnail so click it if you want a bigger version. As a desktop image, it might be a reminder to make the most of the day, “seize the day” and that God is interested in what will happen to us TODAY. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us TODAY, our daily bread.” and told us to ” not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6).
