If you think you can count on tomorrow, consider the story of the 25th president of the United States. President William McKinley was known for wearing a red carnation on his lapel for good luck. On September 6, 1901, while greeting a crowd in Buffalo, New York, the president gave a little girl his lucky flower as a gift. Moments later, an anarchist named Leon Czolgosz pulled out a gun and assassinated the popular president.
In a single moment, the course of history was altered. McKinley’s vice president would ascend to the presidency, as the youngest president in American history – Theodore Roosevelt.
If you are thinking about getting into recovery, do it now. If you have amends to make, make them today. If you need to come clean about a relapse, come clean today.
Recovery Step: Don’t take my word, take God’s. He said to not bank on tomorrow, but to get things right today (James 4:13).
