Un mot, une image, un verset

Few speaks latin fluently but I am sure you already heard the expression "Carpe Diem" used by Horace, a poet of Ancient Rome. To be more complete: "Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow". 

The life with God is based on a Carpe Diem focused on your Creator.

Even Jesus, born a few years after Horace, teaches about it during His passage on earth. On the Sermon on the Mounts, He declares:

« Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. » (Matthew 6:34). 

On the other hand, it was not about enjoying every pleasure on earth without worrying about future as Horace would suggest. Read again the entire chapter 6: Jesus explains you that if you place your trust in Him and your main concern is to glorify Him everyday, then you should not worry about tomorrow! Focus on heavenly matters, the completion of the will of God.

Here goes your Carpe Diem signed by Jesus: «Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow, because God will look after your hapiness if you place Him as a priority in your life». 

Do not worry about the future if you place your trust in God
