Prov 27 “There is no Guarantee of a Tomorrow”
Fools plan on getting right with God tomorrow,but what if there is no tomorrow? Take the example of Felix, trembling under Paul’s preaching. He said, “Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee” (Acts 24:25). It never came.
If today you knew that this would be your last day here on earth, how would you consider using it? It is a truth that we all know but fail often to consider: to each man has been given a certain life span. Yet how often do we take for granted that which God has given to us? What we do with that time and how it will be viewed in eternity is a question we all should consider. Thus it is fitting that both the writers of the OT and NT wisely tell us: “Do not boast about tomorrow; for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” The NT writer James echoes this thought: “You do not know about tomorrow.What is your life like? Remember this you are like a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes.” [Jam 4:14] Even Jesus spoke about this fact: “But as for that day and hour no one knows it– not even the angels in heaven – except the Father alone. [Mat 24:36]
Do not presume there will be a tomorrow. Prepare for eternity today.
