Bible Text: Proverbs 27:1, James 4:13 | Steve Damron
What the Bible has to Say about Tomorrow
Introduction: We will consider a few thoughts this morning regarding tomorrow. The Bible talks about “tomorrow” or “the morrow” over 100x. Here are a few verses to consider as we begin.
Proverbs 27:1 - Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
James 4:13 - Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
- Is tomorrow guaranteed in this life?
- Is tomorrow an unknown in the next life?
- Is today important for the future?
Verses to consider: Exodus 8:5-9, Hebrews 9:27
People to consider who Procrastinated
- The Rich Man
Conclusion: THE DANGER OF SPIRITUAL PROCRASTINATION...
There is a fable which tells of three apprentice devils that were coming to this earth to finish their apprenticeship. They were talking to Satan, the chief of the devils, about their plans to tempt and to ruin men. The first said, "I will tell them that there is no God."
Satan said, "That will not delude many, for they know that there is a God."
The second said, "I will tell men that there is no hell."
Satan answered, "You will deceive no one that way; men know even now that there is a hell for sin."
The third said, "I will tell men that there is no hurry."
"Go," said Satan, "and you will ruin men by the thousands." (taken from sermon by Jack Hudson)
Lesson: The most dangerous of all delusions is that there is plenty of time.
