Bible Verses About Marriage

Five Minutes in the Bible for Men

Rejoice that your names are written in heaven — Luke 10:20

We’ve always been taught that there are no guarantees about tomorrow. Usually, that is very true. Scripture tells us that we only have today — enjoy it to the fullest. But there is one way you can say yes for tomorrow.

A few days after Roy Rogers, the western hero of “B” movies, passed away at his home in Apple Valley, California, a local Christian TV station ran a tribute to his life. One of the segments had Dale Evans, Roy’s wife, singing a song titled, “Say Yes for Tomorrow.” This song was dedicated to the memory of Roy’s early decision to put his trust in Jesus as his personal Savior.

Death is not the enemy of life, but its friend, for it is the knowledge that our years are limited which makes them so precious. It is the truth that time is but lent to us which makes us, at our best, look upon our years as a trust handed into our temporary keeping. — Joshua L/ Liebman

While listening to this song, I began to think back over my own life. I said “yes for tomorrow” by saying yes to Jesus when I was 12 years old. My direction for the future was decided at an early age. As I’ve matured, I’ve realized many adults have never made this affirmation. What a shame to search all one’s life and then, at the end of life, be unsure of what the future might hold.

A very wise man once said, “A wise man does in his youth what a foolish man does in his old age.”

If you haven’t settled what tomorrow will be, take time today to guarantee your destination. Confirm to your family that you will be united forever in heaven.
