Here are some tips for planning your child’s education: 1) Add up the number of years you have to get ready; 2) estimate the cost of education; 3) assess your assets and debts; 4) decide how much you need to save; 5) plan to invest wisely; 6) buy life and health insurance; 7) plan for the unexpected; 8) start right away. Wise planning, right? Yet consider God’s wise plan to save those who belong to Him. Here is what we read in Romans Ch 8: “We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.” Think about the wise steps God employed to bring us such a priceless salvation. For fulfilling us such a wise, loving, and eternal plan, we bow to God in gratitude. We offer Him our entire lives.
