Making Plans

          Imagine going on an ocean cruise to an island. After you have been out on the ocean for a week, you say to the captain, "It sure seems like we should have arrived by now. When do we plan to arrive?" The captain answers, "Plans? I don't make any plans. I just trust God to guide the boat through the wind and waves to the right destination."

          That sounds ridiculous, but many people drift through life in the same way. They make no plans, yet believe they will reach their destination on time. If we fail to plan, we plan to fail. Making plans will cause us to act rather than react. (Kent Crockett, The 911 Handbook, Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 2003, 139)
