"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Boasting about Tomorrow- James 4:13

015
Boasting About Tomorrow

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

That last verse… it has so much truth to it but yet I continue to fall sometimes.  I know somethings are wrong and yet I continue to do it.  Holding that tongue, not even talking about cursing anymore, but what you say or how you say it… that is what I am still working on.. I let my impatience, my anger get the best of me when I know I shouldn’t.
