Plan Ahead



Plan Ahead


          Lately, we hear a lot of plans being made. We plan wars, retirement, business expansion, etc. It might surprise you to know God has something to say about our plans.


What Does The Bible Say?


          James 4:13-16 says... "Now listen, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that.' As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil."  


          From this scripture, we learn:

•1.     We do not really know what the future holds.

•2.     Our life is short.

•3.     To leave God out of our plans is arrogant and foolish.

•4.     We should say, "If the Lord wills" when we plan.
