"Enjoy Your Present"

Mar 21st, 2020 by Dr. Bryant Hall, Sr.


Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow.  For what is your life?  It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

James 4:14


Today is a celebration!  You may be wondering what type of celebration.  It’s a celebration of life.  We have been given the gift of life.  Everyday we are able to wake up with life; we can say that we have received the gift of the present.  There is no better gift received by man, which was only possible through our Savior Jesus Christ. 

We receive the gift of life everyday we are able to wake.  However, receiving the gift and opening the gift are two separate things.  You can receive the gift of life, but show an unappreciative attitude about the gift.  Regardless of your position in life, you must open your gift.  James said life “is even a vapour.”  Life is too short to be worried about the past or the future.

Find a way to enjoy the present.  In the present, you don’t have time to look back at past accomplishments or failures.  Living in the present doesn’t allow you to look to the future for better opportunities of prosperity. 

We all enjoy receiving presents, so do yourself a favor and open your present of today.  Don’t leave this world with your gift unwrapped!  Enjoy your present of today before it “vanisheth away.”

Thanks for your encouragement. I was blessed by it. In the midst of chaotic days and our daily routines, I think we all need reminders that life is short and how we have such a precious gift of the present. Peace and blessings!
