Plan Your Projects

Key Verse

“For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it” (Luke 14:28)?

Text — Luke 14:28-33


The Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors estimated that over 56,000 projects, valued at about 12 Trillion Naira had been abandoned in Nigeria, by both the Federal and various State Governments. One of the causes of abandoned projects is poor planning. Project planning is the process of turning an intangible idea into reality. God is a Master Planner.  Planning helps you to understand the scope of the project, determine the goals and objectives, assess the risks, schedule the tasks and estimate the budget. Project planning is important because it is an antidote to laziness, a path to wisdom, a preparation for the future and helps to reduce pressure and stress.

As a student, you will be required to undertake one project or the other in your life. These include writing and completing an assignment, acquiring a new skill, completing your academic programme and building a future career. Whatever is the nature of the project, the Scriptures counsel that you sit down first and count the cost. Yes, before you embark on the assignment, it will pay to plan your project.


God is a Master Planner


Project planning is an antidote to laziness.

Prayer for today

Oh God, give me the wisdom to plan ahead.
