How we start our days really matters, doesn’t it?
For Calvin, he knows that his day isn’t going to go very well because it’s snowing and he has to go to school and he would prefer to put his pjs back on, make some hot chocolate, and read comic books all day. Or at least, “until the world looks more encouraging.”
When might the world look “more encouraging”? That’s one of the many benefits of being a believer in Jesus — we don’t need to start our day looking to see if the “world looks encouraging”! The Lord is to be the focus of our lives. HE is the One who should cause us to rejoice in a new day to serve Him!
Aren’t you glad that your daily joy does not depend upon the weather, your personal circumstances, or the state of the world?
