We live in a world where the conventional wisdom is that we must have goals and will only be successful if we achieve them. Really?? Is that all there is to life.

Jesus demands we don’t see it that way. He knows we only have today and that is devoted to doing what our heavenly Father wants us to. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

Goals can deceive us into believe now that we know where we are going that we, not God, can make it happen. They undermine our reliance on God. God is God. God doesn’t need our goals.
