why fortune telling is bogus

i see fortune tellers, feng shui arrangers, and date setters all around taiwan. what is the obession with knowing the future, that makes people so lacking in faith that they fear tomorrow to the point that they just have to know?
and anyway, if these street fortune tellers know so much, why are they telling fortunes on the street? why aren't THEY rich?
i get worried sometimes too, anxious about the next day. but i have never beleived in fortune tellers, because i beleive your tomorrow is made by what you do today!
that's right. YOU create your tomorrow by the choices you made today. for example, i know that there will be food in my fridge tomorrow. why? because i went shopping today. there will be cheese, eggs, veggies, meat. so i created what tomorrow will be in that regard (food in my fridge) by going shopping today.
yes, it's possible that the power could cut out and ruin my food, but honestly, 7-11 is just down the street and they sell ice. also, the power probably wouln't be out that long anyway. this ain't a 3rd world country.
i also know that i will have money because i put all my 1 and 5 NTs in my little piggy bank on my desk. i can also survive for weeks at a time because i know survival skills.
finally, i have faith. i beleive God will work out everything for good, even if it's not exactly the way i want it sometimes.
thrift, efficiency, and faith. i don't need a fortune teller.
want to have a bright future? make good choices today and you most likely will. save your money. eat right. exercise. watch both ways before you cross the street. your tomorrow is in YOUR hands. and it's created by what you do today.

"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." matthew 6:31-34
