Carpe Diem! — Tomorrow Maybe

Fully 10 years ago–thinking I would soon preach a sermon on this subject–I clipped an interesting article from the “Science and Health” section of the New York Times about the curious human tendency (behavioral psychologists have discovered) for us to “put off until tomorrow what could be enjoyed today.” Yes, it seems we homo sapiens procrastinate even when it comes to taking pleasure! I would like to explore this tendency, because I believe it has a great deal to teach us about our (often unrealized) potential for spiritual and emotional health.
