Principles of Planning-5

Proverbs 6:6 “Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise,”
Proverbs 6:7 “Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler,”
Proverbs 6:8 “Provides her supplies in the summer, [And] gathers her food in the harvest.”(NKJV)
…From yesterday…The ant is an example not only because it works so hard, but also because it plans ahead. It takes thought in summer that there will be need in winter, and this forethought provides its needs in winter. You need to know the resources that will be required, material, human and financial.
Hear this parable:
Matthew 25:1 “God’s kingdom is like ten young virgins who took oil lamps and went out to greet the bridegroom.”
Matthew 25:2 “Five were silly and five were smart.”
Matthew 25:3 “The silly virgins took lamps, but no extra oil”
Matthew 25:4 “The smart virgins took jars of oil to feed their lamps.”(MSG)
There were two group of ladies here. Both were born again and filled with the Holy Ghost, we know this because the9 bible called them ‘virgins’, ready to meet the bridegroom. Redeemed, but yet five were foolish and five wise.
Friend, being born again is no substitute to planning! You can be tongue talking and foolish, the difference between the two category of ladies was planning!
They both started the journey together, but five planned for the trip knowing the resources that will be required and they were caller wise while the foolish began the journey without planning. You must know what the goal will cost you. The books you’ll need to buy and read, the required skills to be acquired, the financial implications and the people that matter to getting you to the required destination.
Plan for the required resources and make room for extra, the car manufacturers are not foolish, they were smart enough to include a spear tire! Take a cue from them, be wise!(To be continued)
