Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house. (Proverbs 24:27 NLT)
How many times have you read in the local paper about homeowners who have had to dismantle their kitchen extension or whatever because they didn’t get the right planning permission first?
It’s all in the planning. Get that bit right and the rest is easy. Your house will stand for years.
In Biblical terms a “house” is a family. And without fields, your family will have nothing to eat.
