I have a huge problem with looking to far into the future, making up imaginary scenarios that I think will happen. The problem with doing this is that we are not living in the present and trusting God. It puts fear in our hearts that can damage our faith and that is exactly what the devil wants. James 4:13-14, Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”, whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. These two verses are not saying that we can not make plans but to not look to far into our future. We need to trust in God not only daily but hourly and in every minute because we can parish at any given moment.
