The Good Old Days - Message Minute



Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ here with your message minute. 

I enjoy studying past history, don't you?  Studying about religion, ancestry, cultural trends can be fun.  Great radio stations such as Memories 107.9 WAMW help us to relive with nostalgic emotion some of the best moments of our past.  But the Ecclesiastes writer is struggling with a people who live in the past so much that they can't enjoy today.  Wise old Solomon says this in Ecclesiastes 7:10, "Do not say, 'Why were the old days better than these?' For it is not wise to ask such questions."

Those are tough words as we all seem to forget the bad in the past and say things like "I wish we could go back to the good old days again."

It's good to remember, but it is best to be content with what you have today.  Remember this common quote "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift that is why it is called a present."   

Make an effort to be grateful for what God has given you today.  You'll be glad you did. 
*Note* - I accidentally said Ecclesiastes 3 in the audio file.  My apologies on the reference! 

Message Minutes are hosted weekday mornings on 107.9 The Memories WAMW radio show at 7:35am.
