Here's a z/OS DFSORT V1R5 job that will do what you asked for. If the date in the record matches the current date, you'll get RC=16. If the date in the record does not match the current date, you'll get RC=0. You can use the RC to skip the next step or not.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DUMMY
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC BUILD=(5,4,3,2,1,2)
  OUTFIL OMIT=(1,6,CH,EQ,DATE1),NULLOFL=RC16
