Understanding the Plan
By: Rick Boxx
July 5, 2012

During a planning session, a friend drew a four sided picture on the board. He asked us to imagine the picture in the middle being the “Vision.”

To support the vision it needed a frame. On the top side he wrote, “Mission.” On the right he wrote “Values.” On the bottom, “Strategies.” Finally, on the left side he wrote “Metrics.” This picture made it visual and easy for me to remember.

In 1 Chronicles 28 God gave David the plans for building the temple. “All this,” David said, “I have in writing as a result of the Lord’s hand on me, and he enabled me to understand all the details of the plan.”

As you plan for your organization, pray for God’s hand to lead you into understanding.
