The Condition of Modern Man
A Sermon on James 4:13-16
Boasting About Tomorrow
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. (ESV)
Man's fundamental relationship to God; the boast of the modern man; materialism; the god of modern man; the ignorance of man; fellowship with God.
