Proverbs 24:27 says” Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.
Luke 14:28 says” 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?
What is it about AARP that gets us thinking about our aging future? I started getting letters from them way before I turned fifty, and now that I am fifty I don’t hear much from them. The last time they sent me a quote about life Insurance. I looked over their prices, not bad at all. We already have a retirement plan set aside and life Insurance when we need it .
Needless to say all this has caused us to look at other things pertaining to our future. For instance, changing positions within the company, that will give us both more availability towards our style of living. Moving out of the city to maybe the country where things are not as fast and more relaxed.
So how does this verse helps you and I? Well anytime we set out to do anything rather becoming an entrepreneur, write a book or go back to school. We must first sit down with pen and paper and write these things out. For when we do this we are counting the cost. And yet often times we tend to jump into doing things without counting the cost, we will say ” I have it all in my head” well that is impossible because there are some elements that you haven’t entered into the cost. What if the contractor wants more money, did you count that in? But the man who counts the cost is a wise builder.
I am grateful for being in my fifty’s I can’t wait to see what God has in-store for me and my husband as we embark on this aging together.
