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

            I love this illustration. The face of fear drawn on the egg reminds me of the way some people read this verse. You could cower in fear for the future, or you might regard the future as your perfect destination. In reality, we are given today, this day and frequently we do not “make the most” (see Ephesians 5:16) of the time we have. If we are constantly living in the tomorrow that never comes we never savor and enjoy the day we have in our hands.

            In Lewis Carrol’s famous story of Alice the little girl who fell down a rabbit hole and journeyed through a looking glass the queen of hearts intones the harsh statement: “The rule is; Jam tomorrow, Jam yesterday, but never, never Jam today.”

            It’s not wrong to plan ahead. It’s not wrong to project future outcomes. It is wrongheaded to completely put life on hold in anticipation of some future that may never arrive.
