“There are many people who enter into eternity simply thinking they were headed for tomorrow.”–Kenneth Kuykendall

     While preaching in a rural area of Kentucky I stopped at an old country store for gas.  The station had a home-made sign advertising their sale on fuel.  It said, “Gas $1.00 a gallon, on sale tomorrow.”  The price caught my attention but then I noticed the sign was worn and faded, and had been there for years. In their home-spun humor they safeguarded themselves against the sale of cheap gas because tomorrow is always the next day.

For a lot of people, tomorrow is going to be a big event.  Tomorrow things are going to happen.  Tomorrow is when it all goes down.  Many will start reading their Bibles–tomorrow.  Many are going to witness to their lost neighbor–tomorrow. Others will reconcile difficult relationships–tomorrow.  Some will start tithing–tomorrow.  Still others will trust Christ as their Savior–tomorrow.

The problem with such procrastination is that tomorrow is not promised to any person.  James said, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow” (James 4:14).  There are many people who enter into eternity thinking they were headed for tomorrow.  Someone has aptly stated, “If you won’t be better tomorrow than you were today, then what do you need tomorrow for?” Therefore, do whatever you need to do today, today.
