I remember the old saying “The hurrieder I go, the behinder I get.” I didn’t know it was biblical! In Proverbs 21 we read, “careful planning puts you ahead in the long run. Hurry and scurry puts you further behind.”(The Message)  It’s good to “count the cost” as Jesus says. That means “plan… plan… plan.” I think I’m too busy to plan!

The first step in planning a life with meaning, significance and purpose is to choose what’s really important.. then commit yourself to it. If you still don’t know what that is.. you should stop everything until you can decide! Because “mixed motives twist life into tangles; pure motives take you straight down the road.”(The Message)

As for me and my house, “we will serve the Lord.”
