Everyone looks to the future. We make our plans but are frustrated when they get derailed. Scripture warns us that so much of our lives are spent waiting for tomorrow that we miss what God has for us today. We rush to what’s next and fail to focus on who God is now. This passage from James shows us that when we live our lives under the assumption that God has our future in His hands, we find a firm foundation upon which to live today. We own no tomorrow, but we do need to be good stewards of today.

 

James 4:13-17
