Living Like There Is No Tomorrow

Matthew 6:34

Read: Matthew 6:24-34

Matthew 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Sometimes you hear the expression, "He lives like there is no tomorrow." Usually that is said in a derogatory fashion. It means the person is wasteful of his health, his wealth, his loved ones, or his reputation. It means he spends everything now and has nothing left for the future. James Dean said, "Live fast, die young, and leave a pretty corpse." He certainly fulfilled that philosophy.

Proverbs 21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

Luke 15:13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

However, you know we may NOT have a tomorrow. Also, there is a sense in which we should live as though we do not have another chance to do the right thing. In that case, we should indeed live as if there is no tomorrow.
