Making Plans

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility. It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. – St. Augustine

Today’s Saint quote reminds us of where we should begin. God may have great plans for us. God may have small plans for us with great effect. We may have wonderful plans to do incredible things. All of these are well and good, but if they are not grounded, none of them will stand as they should. If we are covered in pride, we will not see the small corrections that are needed as our plans move forward. If we are based in the humility of knowing that our work is made great when it is placed in the hands of God, then even the setbacks can be blessings.
