Wisdom in Planning

Wise planning is a help to the fulfillment of both personal and organizational goals. Plans based on human will or on a mortal sense of intelligence, however, are fallible. But when we humbly seek divine guidance, our perceptiveness is enhanced, and we are better able to establish sound courses of action.

God requires integrity. When we heed His direction, moral firmness will characterize all our plans and their implementation. God is the source of all intelligence, including such strengths of character as honesty, unselfishness, justice, and wholesomeness. Cherishing these moral qualities by expressing them to the utmost of our understanding, we find a guideline for making comprehensive decisions.

In the Lord's Prayer we declare, "Thy will be done." Matt. 6:10; A clear concept of what this means is imperative to our progress. Many people burden themselves with a fatalistic viewpoint; they explain storms, disease, accidents, and various other discords, even frustrations, as being manifestations of God's will.
