Ecc 11v4 – Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem – Seize the Day. It’s more than a call to action; it’s a reminder not to let our days slip by unfulfilled. In the rhythm of daily life, it’s easy to fall into a routine, repeating the same actions, rarely venturing beyond our comfort zones. This is particularly true in our spiritual lives, where opportunities to do good are abundant. Yet, how often do we tell ourselves, “I’ll do it tomorrow.” But ‘tomorrow’ always remains a day away. “I’ll just wait for the right moment, the ideal conditions.” However, the wisdom of Ecclesiastes 11:4 (MSG) says: “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” The message is clear: the day to act, to make a difference, to live out our faith is today. To seize the day is to embrace each moment as a God-given opportunity. It’s to recognise that our actions today can have an eternal impact. It’s a commitment to stop waiting for a more convenient tomorrow and start living out God’s purpose today. In the spirit of Carpe Diem, let’s not just count our days, but make our days count in the service of God’s kingdom. The time is right, right now; you just have to stop waiting for tomorrow and instead Seize the Day today. Open Bible – (Joshua B)
