I guarantee you that I know the most important day in your life. Do you?
Was it the day you were born? After all, you wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for that day. But, no, that’s not it.
You could have been born and day sooner or later and it wouldn’t have mattered much. That’s an important day, but not the most important day.
Was it the day you discovered your Why? You’ve probably heard this quote by Mark Twain.
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.
Nope. That’s not it. Now, don’t get me wrong, I believe that discovering your purpose in life is very important. It’s essential to happiness and meaning. The day you discover your WHY though, is not the most important day.
Could it be the day you became a Christian? Believers in Christ know that’s a significant day in their life. Yet, as important as that day is, it’s not the most important day.
You probably know where I’m going with this.
The MOST important day in your life is TODAY.
All the days of your past are gone. What’s done is done. All the days of your future, if you have one, have yet to arrive.
This day, this moment, is the most important. It’s all that you can live, influence, and enjoy.
The key, of course, is to spend this day wisely.
If today was the last day of your life you no doubt would spend it differently from yesterday. I’m not suggesting that you should spend every day like it’s your last day. But, it is something to keep in mind.
Today is the most important day in your life, because it’s the only day you really have.
