Planning Your Life | James 4:13-17

Series: James

October 11, 2020
Pastor Joshua Lim

We all seek to make plans for our lives, but there is a right approach and a wrong approach to planning our lives. Rather than having an attitude of arrogant self-sufficiency, Christians should place humble dependence on God’s sovereignty, which brings freedom from tomorrow’s worries and strength for today’s obedience.
