Your Best Days Are Now

A Better Way

Review this week’s message.

Key Scriptures

... They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
John 2:8-10 NIV

Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.
Luke 19:1-2 NIV

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. ...”
Matthew 6:34 NIV

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
James 4:13-14 ESV

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24 NLT

Father, thank You for today and for this moment. Help us be fully present with You and with others. We don’t want to miss what we have now in pursuit of what we want later. Please give us peace and strength to be here in this moment. We trust You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
