Plan to succeed. Project planning. I work with people who want to do things and they seem to miss the fact that everyone has 24 hours a day. Everyone. If you are crippled or maimed, if you are silly or stupid or the smartest man on earth, you have 24 hours a day.
Most folks pray and ask God for things without proper planning and that is why we end up with massive buildings costing millions of dollars and our brothers and sisters around the world are starving. If I asked any one of them to do the same, spend money on bricks and their child or parent was starving, they would become indignant and angry. Still, when we have peace and choice we do things that are utterly stupid. Buying someone a coat that costs millions of dollars when someone is dieing is stupid. Yet our religious leaders have clothes worth billions. And it is all at the expense of the poor and starving. Jesus said, “Sell everything you have and give it to the poor.” Now you know why.
So, help me. Lets plan to feed the poor and hungry. Lets plan to stop the bad guy from stealing from us and for goodness sakes, lets plan to be fully occupied with Matthew 25:31-46 rather than putting in some new addition to our closet, house, church or nation.
