James 4 13-17
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into 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. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
I,m sure you’ve heard of the saying ‘ Don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself’ because as it implies we don’t know what tomorrow will bring.
What does the future hold for you next year? I know what the immediate future holds for me because i’m about to become a grandparent in January something i’m quite looking forward too (especially the part where you can hand baby back to parents.)
On a different note it’s our Corps (Salvation Army church’s) 25th anniversary in 2018 and we have a series of events going on throughout the year which will take us through to next December when we will have our big Celebration.
Finally let us not forget that Jesus is our ‘Future and our Past’
