Save Tomorrow for Tomorrow

Let us then think only of the present, and not even permit our minds to wander with curiosity into the future. This future is not yet ours; perhaps it never will be. It is exposing ourselves to temptation to wish to anticipate God, and to prepare ourselves for things which He may not destine for us. If such things should come to pass, He will give us light and strength according to the need. Why should we desire to meet difficulties prematurely, when we have neither strength nor light as yet provided for them? Let us give heed to the present, whose duties are pressing; it is fidelity to the present which prepares us for fidelity in the future.
Francois Fenelon

So what do you think is proper looking to the future? In Proverbs, it speaks of storing up in the summer for the winter. Is that planning wise because it is a known cycle?

Is the wrong thing when you worry or spend energy on things that may never happen?

What do you think?

Philip
