How do you think of tomorrow? Will it be ‘just another day’ – essentially the same as today. Maybe a little better or a little worse?

Or is Tomorrow ‘the first day of the rest of your life’ – the chance to turn over of a new leaf, the opportunity to break from the past, leave it behind, and embrace something new?

Or is it ‘another day’ – a day when new choices will not be constrained by the (bad) choices of yesterday and today?

Or is tomorrow the day that never comes (think Alice through the Looking Glass – jam tomorrow, but never jam today)? – something we shouldn’t even bother thinking about? We may as well “eat and drink for tomorrow we die”?

Jesus had a different attitude. On the one hand he said “Do not worry about tomorrow” (Matt 6:34), because worry is unhelpful, and your focus should be Matt 6:33 (do look it up and learn it!); and on the other hand, he came to give us hope that one day tomorrow will be Today (not ‘today’ as the next of an endless sequence of days, but ‘Today’ as The Day of Salvation). As Jesus said to the man on his death-cross: “Today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:43.
