What Have You Done Today?

Read 833 Times
You say you’ll do much in the years to come, but what have you done today?
You plan to give wealth in a princely sum, but how much have you given away?
You’ll heal broken hearts and dry every tear, bring to them hope and take away fear.
You’ll carry His word to those far and near, but what have you done today?

You say you’ll be kind and then you forget, but did you forget today?
The lonely and hurting wait for your smile, you promised to light up their way;
You aim to give truth a wider display and your faith a much deeper worth.
To carry His love to the ends of the earth, but what have you done today?

You plan to reap much in the by and by, but what have you sown today?
You plan to build mansions high up in the sky, but what have you built today?
It’s nice to dream and in visions bask, but here and now have you done your
task?
The only real question that matters I ask is, “What have you done today?

“There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing in life is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is.
I believe in the latter.”

Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)
