Ready or Not?

If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin. (Ivan Turgenev, 19th century Russian author)

Advance planning is essential if we are to accomplish anything of lasting value. We are almost certain to fail if we don’t develop a plan, gather the needed resources, and consider the pros and cons of the venture. To want to get everything ready before you launch a project is a worthy consideration, of course, but you have to get started sometime, or you can’t possibly finish.

You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. (Proverbs 19:21)
