Albert Einstein

As for me, the things that happened “yesterday” have taught me a lot about what not to do as well as what I should do. I think that I am a much better person because of what I learned during and now from my past. I have no plans to repeat some of those things, and I believe that focusing on God and his Word helps me avoid the missteps. We truly must “learn from yesterday.”

1 Peter 4:3 – 5 (NKJV)

3 For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. 4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. 5 They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

In some of our recent adult classes, we have been learning about fear. As Mr. Einstein points out, we are to “live for today.” Fear can and does hinder us from living our lives. I know there are many things that can cause us to be afraid, but we need to remember that Jesus is always with us.

Hebrews 13:5 – 6 (NKJV)

5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 6 So we may boldly say:

“The Lord is my helper;

I will not fear.

What can man do to me?”

We are told that we are not guaranteed tomorrow. What that tells me is that I need to live my life in a manner that demonstrates the hope that is in me for something greater than what I have on this earth, and that is eternal life and a future home in Heaven. We need to stay focused on our “hope for tomorrow.”

Titus 3:4 – 7 (NKJV)

4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

“The important thing is to not stop questioning.” Although Mr. Einstein was not a religious person, as Christians we should never stop questioning what man says but rather continue seeking God’s truth. There is so much misinformation being spewed out all around us, that it becomes difficult to discern the truth from what is a lie. My thought is that today’s worldly wisdom is just clutter that has nothing to do with our salvation. We need to be very careful that we do not believe everything we hear nor even what we may see.

Romans 1:18 – 25 (NKJV)

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
