The Unplanned and The Planned

The Unplanned and The Planned…

The Planned Let’s say you wanted to have a rotten relationship with someone. How do you go about planning the rotten relationship?

You could plan never to express any love to them. You could plan to be critical all the time. You could plan to not come through on your responsibilities. You could plan on not coming home on time, being irritable, inconsiderate, hurting their feelings, purposely neglecting their birthday, and just never going out of your way for them.

You do these things and chances are you’ll end up with a rotten relationship. That’s how you plan out bad relationships. No one plans to end up with rotten relationships. But that’s exactly how bad relationships happen — with no planning.

Good relationships don’t happen that way. Good relationships take planning. If you want a good relationship with your parents or children or husband or wife, you’re going to have to want it.

You’ll have to plan for it, work at it and persevere in it. But it’s more than worth it. It will make the difference between what is worthless and what is precious.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3

Make plans to spend a day with someone you may have been neglecting. Mark it on your calendar.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
