Let each day take thought for what concerns it, liquidate its own affairs, and respect the day which is to follow, and then it shall be ready.
What does your anxiety do? It does not empty to-morrow, brother, of its sorrow; but ah! it empties to-day of its strength. It does not make you escape the evil; it makes you unfit to cope with it if it comes.
Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.
—Matthew 6. 25.
My Father, save me from the habit of borrowing. So often I borrow trouble and cannot use it, when the peace that I possess is all that I need. Help me, that I may not miss the glory of to-day, by anticipating the uncertainty of to-morrow; but may I discern my place and have delight in every day. Amen.
