There are basically two extreme types of planners: the long-ranger with Post-it Notes all over the house, car, and work; and then the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants type who thinks time is a magazine title.
Planning is a good and necessary thing. Better yet, God-dependent planning is a responsible and rewarding part of Christian living.
Our King’s glory is so awesome that we tend to shine it only on the big plans of our lives: medical procedures, selling or buying high value items, employment, etc. Here our total dependence on his guidance is a no-brainer.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
But how about reflecting his glory on the seemingly insignificant plans in our lives? As you stand in front of a mirror, what will your wardrobe choices reflect? As you plan meals, will the food choices harm or keep your body healthy? As you plan to attend the next social gathering, will your words float on the wings of virtue or sink with the weight of dishonor? As you plan your next shopping trip, will it fit within your means? Is God’s glory reflecting so brightly in these areas that you’re glowing like Moses at the burning bush?
There’s no time like the present to reconfigure where needed and get out those sunglasses!
