When is a Gift not a PRESENT?


Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” ~Bil Keane

The Title reads, when is a gift not a present?  The quotes below tell the WHEN.

“Say not to thy friend: Go, and come again: and tomorrow I will give to thee: when thou canst give at present.”
[Proverbs 3:28]

“Who shall not receive much more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.”
[Luke 18:30]

In the Old Testament the story of the Martyrdom of the second son, his last breath he prophesied the resurrection. His quote from the book of 2 Machabees 7:9
“And when he was at the last gasp, he said thus: Thou indeed, O most wicked man, destroyest us out of this present life: but the King of the world will raise us up, who die for his laws, in the resurrection of eternal life.”

“I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercy of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing unto God, your reasonable service.”
Romans 12:1

THE BEST QUOTE IS for our day:  “Jesus Christ is present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar,” the Catechism.

An anonymous quote: “I can’t tell you everything I know at present because I don’t know anything.”
