It is called positional truth. Many of us will live our entire lives simply looking at life from our own perspective. This leads to conclusions like; “Look at what I have done,” or “All of this is mine.”
George Bernard Shaw once said, “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” Some of us live our lives in the fear of making a mistake. Life becomes a routine of bland, cautious decisions. Others throw caution to the wind and look back on life as a series of mistakes punctuated by some successes.
The routines of a day or week are like an anesthesia that leaves us numb to the possibilities of today and assuming the dull routine of tomorrow. The assumptions of the Bible are quite different. We are to assume that today God has placed many open doors before you because today is a gift. Do not worry about or assume anything about tomorrow.
