Vision and Plan
Recently I was speaking at the Youth Specialties National Youth Workers Convention, and Andy Stanley from North Point Church in Atlanta was one of the general session speakers. He was talking about how to lead in the midst of uncertainty and he was trying to show the difference between vision and plans.
He had the audience repeat after him: vision remains but plans change.
Then he made it more vivid. He said, Fall in love with your vision but date your plans.
Love that. Whats the vision we have for our families and our ministries? Thats long-term. This month, or this season, the plan to accomplish that vision might look one way. Next month, or next season, it might look different.
Be married to your vision but be ready to be divorced from your plans.
