Was Yesterday Better Than Today?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Ecclesiastes 7-9 today.
We long for the good ole days. Is that wise? We think they were better than today, but is that true? Solomon advised, “Do not say, ‘Why were the former days better than these?’ For you do not inquire wisely concerning this” (Ecclesiastes 7:10). We have biased memories of yesterday and we have biased eyes for today. We think yesterday was better and we think today is worse. Yesterday had good things, but it had bad things too. Today has bad things, but it has good things too.
We cannot go back in time, nor can we bring the good things of yesterday to the present. Therefore, work to make today the best it can be.
