This moment isn’t meant to be a destination but a preparation . . .  (Paul David Trip, author)

Sometimes we think that what we’re doing today is the most important issue of life without realizing what happens today is critical to tomorrow’s success, too. Tripp was thinking of preparation for a “final destination” with an important other world, spiritual application. But it can have a “this world” practical application, too. Be sure you’re preparing with the end in mind.

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity (Proverbs 21:5).
