You Need A Vision (#879)
Today we’re going to talk about the importance of having a vision. Is is humorous and rather interesting to me that some people can see things up close and need glasses to see things at distance and others can see things far away, but can’t see things up close without glasses. So it seems to be true in life, where some people are great at dealing day-to-day challenges, but ask them about the future and they panic; and other people have a great vision of where they want to be ten years from now, but they can’t deal with practical realities day-to-day. Well, God wants us to have a vision for our lives that is good for both; a great positive, expectation for the future like the return of His son. But he also wants us to be have a vision for today. Let get into the records covering this subject.
