A link in the chain of days

February 16th 2011
Do your best to live today well, for tomorrow does not yet exist, and by worrying about it, it is as if you are throwing yourself into empty space, and you are likely to lose yourself. It is today you must work on, for today does not die; it just gets longer, until it becomes tomorrow. Jesus said, ‘Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.’ This tells us we have to meditate on the idea of duration, of continuity. A chainmaker has to check each link for strength, for if a single link is weak and breaks it makes no difference that the others are holding fast – the whole chain is broken. So we must live each day according to the divine laws and make this day into a strong link so that the chain does not break. Today is a new link that must be added to the others, and it is this link we must concentrate on.
