Proverbs 27:1 “Do not make your boast about the next day, for you do not know what a day will give birth to.”
This is a tricky piece of practical advice – many people, myself included, like to plan. I tend to get excited and will talk about stuff for the next day – though it may not actually happen, and that is very disappointing. If we’re more aware that it may/may not happen the world does not come crashing down when the anticipated thing doesn’t come to pass!
And as for boasting – that just makes it worse. Ego gets on a high from raising itself over others and then crashes down when it realises…. it was wrong! 😀
This was the proverb I flipped open today and what I got from it. I’d welcome any comments. 😀
