James 4:13-17 - Arrogant Boasting About The Future

13 Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a town, stay there a year, conduct business, and make money." 14 You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

15 Instead you should say, "If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that." 16 But you boast about your proud intentions. All such boasting is evil. 17 Therefore, anyone who knows what is right but fails to do it is guilty of sin.
