Bucket-loads of Humility is Good.
Esau gave no such consideration to his future when he exchanged a morsel for his birthright. Cain's impulsive and murderous jealousy of Abel made matters ever worse. The Lord condemned Cain to never settle, and live out his days as a nomad, to restlessly wander the earth. (This is also known as 'the curse of Cain'.)
I can sow the seeds of health or hardship.
The quality of my tomorrows so easily echoes the decisions I have made today. Blessings or burdens are secured by choices today.
The man who desires good tomorrows will soberly examine the impacts of his decisions prior to making his ways each new day. Such an attitude requires humility in 'bucket-loads', that ability to become small in one's own eyes.
Yielding to temptations secures tomorrow as worse than today, despite its promise of betterment. The 2nd state will not be better than the 1st.
Tomorrow proves the quality of today’s decisions. Tomorrow never ends, but today always does.
So when all is said and done let the words of the Christ dwell in you richly that your days will be long and productive in His service, and all your tomorrows are ever better.
The good Lord would say to each of us:
If you continue to get each day right before Me, your next and then final day will be right too.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)
