Don’t boast about tomorrow,
or brag about today
don’t plan your course of action
or go off in your own way.
Don’t say I will do this,
or try a little bit of that
don’t show off your deeds
or give yourself a pat.
For arrogance to the Lord,
is really just a sin
for all that you accomplish
it’s all rubbish if not for Him.
But if you seek God’s will first,
He will lead you from here on
for your life is but a vapor
and one day . . .
it’ll just vanish and be gone!
King James Version
“Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow
we will go into such a city, and continue
there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life? It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will,
we shall live, and do this, or that.
But now ye rejoice in your boastings:
all such rejoicing is evil.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good,
and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
Deborah Ann Belka
