“…There is a time in which we should have a back- up plan in business planning and strategy, but when and why…?”

Image result for caricature of man choosing plan a or plan bPLAN A, or PLAN B? Here’s my question…when laying out your POA (Plan-Of-Action), should you have a plan A, and B, and maybe, even, Plan C? Or, should Plan A suffice? If we’re building a house, we only need one plan. If we’re selling new cars, maybe we need a number of different plans. If we’re getting married, we surely only need one plan.

As for cars…do we have too many style choices (or plans?) to choose from? Remember the Model A, the Model T? Henry Ford had very limited choices, and no options. It seems to me that there are some… On the other hand…look how many different cereal varieties are available on the cereal aisle at your local super market. Or, how many different lipstick varieties that are available. Cars? There are some 6 or 700 different car brands available. Staggering!

Certainly there is a time in which we should have a back- up plan in business planning and strategy, but when and why? Throughout the Bible, God offers only one choice. He provides only Plan A. He doesn’t want to confuse us, obviously.

John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, but through Me.” Notice that Jesus Himself said this, and not merely His followers. Jesus Christ Himself proclaimed that He is the only way to God. In John 10:9, Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters through me, he shall be saved.”

You decide; do you need more than one plan? As always… it’s “good versus evil.” It’s not a difficult choice.
