Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

There are enough burdens, concerns, and troubles that occur in the present without worrying about those that will or may occur in the future. Don't waste your time and energy worrying about what might go wrong. Just focus on every step of the project as it occurs. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. In trying to legislate for problems down the line, many of which may never even come to pass, the government is failing those who need help right now. This protest march is thus being held to remind them that sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

When I am frantic about how I am going to get through my week, I sing the Apostle Matthew's "Consider the Lilies of the Field," as I once did in Spelman's chapel, and am reminded that "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." It helps me do what is at hand rather than worry about what has to be done tomorrow and next week, and prompts me to remember that God knows and will meet our needs if we will but trust Him.
