Daily Bible Verse - 12/10/2007 - Proverbs 27:1

NIV Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
KJV Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
NASB Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Proverbs 27:1

Commentary
The uncertainty of health, circumstances, and life itself point to the truthfulness of this maxim. Nowhere is the urgency of immediate action more crucial than in the matter of one's eternal destiny (Is. 1:18; 2 Cor. 6:2; Heb. 3:7, 8). Of the future even the wisest of men are ignorant, for all time beyond this very moment is known only to God (James 4:13, 14).

[Jesus speaking]

16 And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. 17 He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.'

18 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '

20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'

21 "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."

Luke 12:16-21 (NIV)

It would be wise to hear with your good ear what is being layed upon silver plates for you in this time of the season. We will all fall short the glory of God but as we seek Him He will reveal Himself to us. That is why it is important to pray without ceasing. What is prayer? Other books could interpret it worship without ceasing. This was written and preserved throughout history as planned by God so that we can LISTEN so that we may be full of joy!!! And in finding it through the ways told in the bible Joy indeed it is.
