By failing to prepare, you’re preparing to fail. (Benjamin Franklin)

Some folks really like to be spontaneous; they don’t like to plan too far ahead. Life is more exciting, they think, when you don’t know exactly what’s coming up next. Sometimes, however, they discover too late that a little advanced planning would have saved them from pain or loss. Better to plan carefully and allow for the unexpected.

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. . . Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity (Proverbs 16:3; 21:5).
