Pay Day v.s. Play Day

Everybody has a "pay day" and a "play day".

If you pay now, you can play later --
but if you play now, you will have to pay later - and the price might be higher than you expected. There's no such thing as a free ride. You reap what you sow.

If you do not humble yourself now, you will be humbled later.
If you do not discipline yourself now, you will be disciplined by life later.
If you live on credit now, you'll have to pay compound interest later.
If you are selfish now, you will be isolated and lonely later.
If you are negative now, life will get worse later.
If you are angry now, you will be bitter and ugly later.
If you fail to be kind now, you won't have friends later.
If you are a "people pleaser" now, you will sacrifice your integrity later.
If you don't cherish your family now, you won't have a family later.
If you don't work hard now, you will not succeed later.
If you fail to make healthy choices now, you will feeble and frail later.
If you don't read, learn and grow now, your brain will turn to mush later.
If you tell lies now, you will have to remember everything you said later.

On the other hand . . .
If you are generous now, you will be blessed later.
If you love now, you will receive 100 times the love later.
If you save money now, you will have wealth later.
If you build your faith now, it will hold you up later.
If you pay attention to your wife (husband) now, she (he) will bring tremendous fulfillment to your life later.
If you are positive now, things will get better later.
If you encourage others now, they will help you later.
If you live by faith now, you will never regret it later!

If you treat today right, tomorrow will return the favor.

Great list!

I especially liked the following...

"If you are a "people pleaser" now, you will sacrifice your integrity later."

How many times do people do something just so others will like them or they can be part of the crowd? We talk about peer pressure among young people. I see just as much peer pressure among adults.

It is difficult to take a stand when others turn against you because of it. But it is the right thing to do.
