Planning is important in your home, your finances, your daily life and in preaching.  Our personalities play a great role in how we approach the planning of our preaching.  Consider the wonderful process of going on vacation, some plan for months in advance and others grab a last-minute deal and get ready for an adventure.

When it comes to our preaching our approach needs to fall in between the vacationers that has everyday planned from morning to evening and the vacationers who wakes up every morning thinking, “What shall we do today?”
