Making Big Plans Part 1 of 2

Making Big Plans Part 1 of 2

Many of us have goals that we want to accomplish. We may have long term goals that we hope to reach in the distant future, and we may have short term goals that we want to accomplish in the near future. There is nothing wrong with planning our future and desiring to reach our goals. However, it is very important that we don’t allow our goals to drive our lives.

James 4:14-16 teaches us an important lesson about planning our future and making sure it lines up with God’s plan for us. Verse 14 says ”whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.

The verse is telling us that our lives are the same way. Our time on this earth is not long at all. Life is short. The world will have us to believe that since life is short, we should live it up and do what we want. But, what does God want us to do? …
