    Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save,

    Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make.
    Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I will try to save, the more enemies I make.

    What are the differences in meaning of above two sentences?
