You Don’t Know Tomorrow

27 Don’t brashly announce what you’re going to do tomorrow;

    you don’t know the first thing about tomorrow.

2 Don’t call attention to yourself;

    let others do that for you.

3 Carrying a log across your shoulders

    while you’re hefting a boulder with your arms

Is nothing compared to the burden

    of putting up with a fool.

4 We’re blasted by anger and swamped by rage,

    but who can survive jealousy?

5 A spoken reprimand is better

    than approval, that’s never expressed.

-Proverbs 27:1-5 The Message

27 Do not boast about tomorrow,

    for you do not know what a day may bring.

2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;

    a stranger, and not your own lips.

3 A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty,

    but a fool’s provocation is more severe than both.

4 Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming,

    but who can stand before jealousy?

5 Better is open rebuke

    than hidden love.

-Proverbs 27:1-5 ESV

Verse 1 study: Wisdom is concerned with taking hold of your life. The fact is, people do not have control over their future. Fools believe they do, but they don’t reckon with God’s sovereign will.

Verse 2 study: Humble = Wisdom

Verses 3-4 studies: These two verses show the destructiveness of folly.

Verse 5 study: Open rebuke: aimed at correction for one’s good. Hidden love: genuine, lacks the moral strength to risk giving a rebuke.

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
