In this comic strip, Jeremy seems to be trying to get out of work. On the other hand, he may have a point.
I think we should be very careful about making plans and goals. I have gotten myself into a lot of trouble when I have made big goals and plans for myself. For me, it works better to first pray about a thing, and then pray some more. I would rather let Him lead me into something than to make big plans. As Proverbs 16:3 instructs us, we should first commit our way to Him and then He will establish the plans He desires of us.
The mind of man plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
But the counsel of the Lord, it will stand.
Commit your works to the Lord,
And your plans will be established.
