Edifier du Jour-James 4:13-16(NASB)
13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit." 14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. 15 Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that." 16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.I was thinking of ESPN's Dan Patrick's standard quip for a injured player-"He's listed as day to day, but, then again, aren't we all?" Shuttles (and plenty of other things) crash, killing their occupants. Divorces happen; Eileen's old grade school buddy just had her husband walk out on her. ACL's get torn; at Warner, we've got at least three guys on crutches with blown knees. Nothing goes quite according to plan; at least according to our plans. We need to plan for the future, but remember that God has the ultimate Franklin Planner on His desk, and His planner might not look like yours. An old First Call song had the refrain "I may not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future." Both Eileen and I can't see clearly past this spring-her current temp job will likely be over next month and my Warner Southern position is on a one-year contract that's up in May. A part of me, more than I'd like to admit, is nervous about the future. However, if we remember who's desk that universal planner's on, we can rest easier.
