Ready for today?

As you can tell from my photo I am a pilot. Have been for about 30 years.

One truth in flying is no two flights are the same.

This can be both good and bad. Good because you have to be prepared for the contingencies of the next flight. Bad because you never know what contingencies the next flight will bring.
The same can be said of life. So how do we prepare for the contingencies?
Here are three ways to prepare for each day.

1. Open your Bible. Yes, check out the owners manual. Just basic reading to gain knowledge and understanding of ourselves and God.

2. Open your hands. We often clench our fists – either to hang onto something ‘precious’ or to hit something. Neither are usually beneficial. And, when our hands are squeezed tight, there is little room for God to place anything in them.

3. Open your heart. Others benefit from our generous spirit. Not necessarily money. Give your talents, time, trust. Giving to others provides opportunity to have a positive factor in another’s life.

More to come…
