Sufficient unto the day

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:34 KJV). This partial verse has been popping into my head lately. It’s something that either my grandma or my mother used to say, and it has stuck with me.

I prefer the more modern translation of the complete verse from the New Living Translation:

So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

I think this verse is coming to mind because we are approaching the end of our vacation. It has been a good time overall, and I am very thankful. It has been possible only because of the kindness and generosity of a sibling.

Physical, emotional and mental health issues within my family have improved over the last several days, and we all have had a chance to rest, relax, and enjoy the outdoors as well as the company of extended family.

Of course, I wish we could stay longer, and I do not look forward to returning to work. Another well known aphorism is that “all good things must come to an end.” This side of heaven, anyway.
