Today is Leap Day. It’s a cool thought that we only get this extra day every four years, but in reality there hasn’t been anything extraordinary about today in particular. When I first woke up I thought to myself, “Today I’m gonna do something epic!” However, as always, life happened. Here it is, nearly time for bed and I’m sitting here trying to think if I really did anything out of the ordinary. Well besides eating, running, going to class and so on, there wasn’t really anything different about today. There’s really nothing different about days like Leap Day, or days like December 31st. However, we should strive to treat every day like Leap Day, and be thankful for the moment we are in and not take our lives for granite. Tomorrow is never a promise, as explained in James 4:13:
13 Pay attention, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such-and-such a town. We will stay there a year, buying and selling, and making a profit.” 14 You don’t really know about tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for only a short while before it vanishes. 15 Here’s what you ought to say: “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”
