Charles Swindoll- Faith And Planning go Hand-in-Hand

Charles Swindoll says, “To walk by faith does not mean that we stop thinking. To trust God does not imply becoming lazy or apathetic. What a distortion of biblical faith! You and I need to trust God for our finances, but that is no license to spend foolishly. You and I ought to trust God for safety in the car, but we’re not wise to pass in a blind curve. We trust God for our health, but that doesn’t mean we can chain smoke, and subsist on potato chips and twinkies without consequences. ...Faith and careful planning go hand-in-hand. They always have.” (Charles Swindoll. Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication p. 27).
