My Focus: Verse 1
“Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth”
1) The Folly of Presumption –
(Presumption:)An assumption or guess work based upon that which is yet undiscovered.
The current health concern that we are dealing with was virtually unknown to us before Christmas past.
Many since then boasted of their opinion as to whether this would be a major or minor risk to us.
Some just assumed they had an understanding of what the future consequences would be, when in fact none of us do!
That says volumes about the uncertainties of life!
2) The Fact of Providence –
While we do not know what a day will bring forth, our omniscient Lord does!!
He knows the end from the beginning!
So our only boast is in the majestic one who knows the future and who holds it in His hands!!
In these days of uncertainty, that certainty should console us!
Have A God Conscious Day!
