“I compare the troubles which we have to undergo in the course of the year to a great bundle of sticks, far too large for us to lift.

But God does not require us to carry the whole at once. He mercifully unties the bundle, & gives us first one stick, which we are to carry today & then another, which we are to carry tomorrow & so on.

This we might easily manage, if we would only take the burden appointed for us each day; but we choose to increase our troubles by carrying yesterday's stick over again today & adding tomorrow's burden to our load, before we are required to bear it.”

- John Newton (

“It is not the cares of today, but the cares of tomorrow, that weigh a man down. For the needs of today we have corresponding strength given. For the morrow we are told to trust. It is not ours yet. It is when tomorrow's burden is added to the burden of today that the weight is more than a man can bear.” - George Macdonald.

Mat 6:34 (CEV): “Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today.”
