Don't count on tomorrow

Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth. - Proverbs 27:1

Don’t boast about tomorrow for you never know what a day might bring.
Take no thought of tomorrow, today has enough issues of its own.

There are plenty of warnings about being too focused on tomorrow. Those of us who have lived any time at all know the perils of pinning to many hopes or casting too many fears about tomorrow. Most have had too many days come along that shake everything up and sometimes change our lives forever. We get a phone call or a text or an email or a letter in the post and the day becomes nothing like the one we woke up to.

We can’t count on tomorrow – we can’t despair of it either. We don’t know what it will present to us. Who knows where will be when the sun sets tomorrow? We ought to pray and plan and prepare – but don’t count on the day going on you want it to go. The Lord may have other plans for you.
