Human beings are often fixated on what’s going to happen in the future! That’s why there are so many fortune tellers and tabloids print predictions from prognosticators! That’s also why people get all excited when someone predicts the end of the world. The disciples made the same mistake and Jesus corrected them, telling them not to focus on the future but on their duty here and now. May today’s devotional help us all do the same. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“Would you look between the folded leaves of the future? You can buy a penny newspaper which will tell you the fate of nations this very year. You may be well-nigh sure that nothing will happen which is thus predicted, and thus it may be of some little use to you. Be you content with the prophecies of Scripture, but follow not every interpreter of them. Many people would pay largely to have the future made known to them. If they were wise, they would rather desire to have it concealed. Do not want to know; such knowledge would answer no useful purpose. The future is intended to be a sealed book. The present is all we need to have before us. Do thy day’s work in its day, and leave tomorrow with thy God.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon,The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XXXVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1891), p. 285]
