Proverbs 16:9, "In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps"
James 4:13, Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will … buy and sell, and make a profit”
There is a saying that goes like this, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. Thus, planning is an essential element to any successful business; however, even a good plan can go bad. As an illustration the executives at the DuPont Corporation learned that lesson

I know this to be the truth. It is clear that he intends to show how to do this. I have read the introduction and the first section of the second chapter. Already I have a few things I am wondering about which I suspect might be answered as I go on reading. But I
Psalm 37:7, "Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him"
Patience is a quiet virtue. No medal is stamped to recognize it; no fire chief, mayor, or president makes a speech honoring its practice. Like housecleaning, it is more noticeable “in the breach than in the observance.” Nevertheless, patience is a foundational element in the Christian character, a mark of emotional and spiritual maturity, and a central trait of the life of faith.
