“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.”
How often do we plan for tomorrow assuming that it’s going to come about, not considering the possibility of an unexpected intervention? I know, we have to plan for tomorrow, and even the future beyond. But we must also plan with the knowledge that there is a possibility of something arising in the meantime that may hinder our plans. Of course, we want God to be pleased with all of our plans, regardless of what they may include. But we also must remember that God is sovereign, and that He may have plans that differ from mine. I’ve also got to consider that others may be involved with something that coincides with what’s going on in my life and may conflict with it. I need to be prepared for whatever God may have in store for me and recognize that it may put me on a different path than I originally planned. Never should I, as I make plans for the future, boast about what I’m going to do tomorrow, next week, or even next year! I always want to stop and give thanks for what He has allowed me to do now, today, and then wait and see what tomorrow will bring. “Come now, you who say ‘Today or tomorrow we will go in to such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit. Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring...” (James 4:13-14) Let’s live this day as if it was the last, wanting to please God more than anything else, and God will bless your day!
God, help me to consider how I might please and glorify you today, then help me through the day as I take care of the business at hand, being a good steward of all that you have blessed me with. Amen
