James 4

Read James 4.

13 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”— 14 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. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”

James 4:13-15, ESV

Life is short and fleeting, and that should give us even more of a desire to look to God as the creator and giver of all things. We are only here for a little time, but God put us on the earth with a purpose that serves His greater plan. We shouldn’t waste time by thinking that we can control what tomorrow holds. Instead, we should be focused on the provision and blessings from our Lord and seek His direction in all things.
