To not have a plan is to foolishly surrender your life to others.
To slavishly commit yourself to a plan is to foolishly surrender your life to a plan which was created by a finite and limited person—namely you!

Currently, a part of my plan as the new Administrative Bishop for the North Central Region is to visit every church under my care. So, in working to complete this plan, I scheduled a Sunday to be with Pastor Kris Wattelet and his lovely wife, Kathleen, and their outstanding congregation at Union Center Prairie Bible Church in Union Center, SD. On the way, I had to make an adjustment to the plan and stop my car to take in the breath-taking scenery and take a few pictures. That’s called enjoying the journey!
