Focus on doing right today, and the tomorrow you will see the rewards.

tomorrow“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” – Proverbs 27:1

In the late 1990’s, computer programmers realized that the dates they had been writing in most programs were hard wired to 19XX. This meant that when the date became 2000, there could be conceivably computer errors. The problem was dubbed “Y2K” short for year 2,000.

Many companies began addressing this problem in the last few years of the twentieth century. Edmund DeJesus, editor of Byte Magazine, thought that the problem would be catastrophic. In 1998, he wrote: “Y2K is a crisis without precedent in human history.”

In 1999, DeJesus wrongly predicted “I think a close analogy to Y2K is a hurricane.” He then gave advice about the loss of electricity due to Y2K: “Electric generators are an interesting idea for the electrically-dependent. Don’t wait until November or December to buy one: start looking now or during the summer. Remember that fuel may be in short supply, so have enough available beforehand. Use it only for essential purposes, such as if it is the only possible source of heat, not to run the microwave. It has to go outside, so don’t be surprised if it gets stolen.”

Thankfully his apocalyptic prediction of January 1, 2000 did not occur.

We do not know what will happen tomorrow. Today in prayer, confess any sin of boasting in the future and trust in Jesus for all of your days.

“I never worry about the future, it comes soon enough.” – Albert Einstein

What the Bible has to say about the matter: “Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.” – James 4:13-16
