Rainy Days and Mondays

by Stan Mitchell
“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring” (Proverbs 27:1, ESV).
“Weather forecasting,” someone has said, “is still a few hours behind arthritis.” Weathermen get a lot of ribbing about their forecasting. Have you ever seen a weatherman at a picnic when the rain started to fall? Now that would be funny!
What do weathermen save for a rainy day? A few good excuses? Of course the reason weathermen have such a hard time predicting the future is because they, like all of us, are human, and do not know the future.
Not only does God know the future, he controls it! It is human for us to forget how little we control. We arrogantly make plans for the future, predicting achievements and activities as if we have any control over what will take place.
Instead of predicting the future, we might as well be catching the rain in our hats!
Here’s a better idea. Make sure that you are in a right relationship with God (Luke 13:1-5). Then, you won’t need the weather forecast because you will be living with the weather enforcer!
That way, tomorrow will indeed take care of itself.
