There are duties that must be done at a particular moment or they cannot be done at all. It is to-day the sick neighbour needs your visit, your help; to-morrow he may be well or others will have ministered to him, or he may be dead. It is to-day that your friend needs your sympathy, your comfort; it will not be of any use to him to-morrow. It is to-day that this tempted one needs your help in his struggle; to-morrow he may be defeated, lying in the dust of shame. It is to-day you must tell the story of the love of Christ; to-morrow it may be too late. Learn well the meaning of Now in all life. To-morrow is a fatal word; thousands of lives and countless thousands of hopes have been wrecked on it. To-day is the word of divine blessing.
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: ... a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; (KJV)
