“Real generosity to the future lies in giving all to the present.” – Albert Camus
Not much more need be said. Take some time to think about the implications of this one simple sentence. It is a life changing truth for living an abundant life.
Here are some other voices on the subject.
“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift from God, which is why we call it the present.” – Bill Keane
“Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person’s seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.” – Elisabeth Elliot
“Remember then: there is only one time that is important — Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power. The most necessary man is he with whom you are, for no man knows whether he will ever have dealings with anyone else: and the most important affair is, to do him good, because for that purpose alone was man sent into this life!” – Leo Tolstoy, The Three Questions
