“Teach us to number our days…” Psalm 90:12
You have probably seen the recent very popular commercial for Geico Insurance where the camel is going through the office from person to person trying to get them to say what day it is. When one co-worker finally says under duress, “It’s Wednesday.”, the camel gets excited once the magic words have been said and finishes the commercial with, “Hump Day!! Yeah!!”
Great commercial. To the camel hump day is not just any other day.
It is a special day.
And this day, being Wednesday, certainly is not just any other day.
Stop and consider this for a moment.
For the remainder of this day several things will happen.
People will be born and unfortunately some pass away on this day. Many will be affected.
Somewhere, couples will marry. It’s Wednesday. Wed – nes – day. Google it.
Some will gain a job. Some will lose a job.
Lives will be changed in some manner.
Today is a direct encounter with history.
Simplistic thought? Not if you consider the implications.
It makes this specific day unbelievably important and special.
Tomorrow you will not be able to go back and change today. It will then be history with only memories.
So, that makes this not just any other day.
Stop and take account of this day before you begin. Purpose to make it a day to be remembered.
Look up great events that happened on this day in history and pass them along. Remind someone else that today is simply not just any other day.
Make it the greatest day of your life.
And in order to do that, make it the greatest day of someone else’s life.
