“Vision is the art of seeing invisible things.” – Jonathan Swift
It is the careful consideration of what is…

I. Vision drives the future.
No one can make proper decisions without vision. How can a person/organization know the appropriate budget, make decisions about the future, or calculate risks without vision? After all, “Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint,” (Proverbs 29:18). Remember, vision can only go as far as leadership carries it, and your preparation sets the parameters for your expectation. In other words, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap,” (Galatians 6:9). Sow seeds of diligence today so that you can reap the benefits of preparation in days to come, but remember, failing to plan is planning to fail. Prior planning, preparation, and practice prevent poor performances.
