“For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?”
Are you an “idea” person? I used to be great at coming up with plans and dreams. But I had a habit of rushing headlong into trying to accomplish them without enough planning. So, those great ideas often got abandoned before I made any progress on them. I’ve realized the importance of slowing down, to give myself a chance to think, and especially to pray, about a new plan. That way, I can know better what I’m getting into, and that it will be aligned with God’s plan for me.
