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.
The context of Jamess question was preoccupation with planning tomorrows activities, without considering the Lords will. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself Jesus had said (Matt.6:34). As weve no idea what a new year might bring, or when the mist of our lives will vanish, is worrying about the future the best way of spending our time? Instead lets fill our days with the, good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Eph. 2:10).
