The fallacy: The further ahead you can see what’s coming, the better you can be prepared.

The truth: No one can foresee the future, so be prepared every moment of every day.

The Boy Scouts have the scoop on this one. Before them, the Bible.

“Watch out! Stay alert! For you do not know when the time will come” (Mark 13:33 NET).

“So if someone cleanses himself of such behavior, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart, useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Tim 2:21).
