Wisdom Waits

Proverbs 19:2 warns, “A person who moves too quickly may go the wrong way” (NLT)! In today’s fast-paced world, circumstances may try to keep you from taking the time you need to think through situations. Your kids shout that they’re going to a friend’s house as they head out the door. Your friend calls and says she’s got tickets to a concert… and do you want to go… but you have to decide right this minute ’cause they’re going fast. A salesperson comes to the door and says if you order right now, you’ll get a big discount on carpet cleaning.

No matter what the pressure is, “wisdom waits.” Take time to pray and, when necessary, consult someone you trust. The truth is that very few things in life call for an instant decision or offer rewards worth the problems that haste brings. Keep your cool. Take your time.

Lord, give me a few minutes to catch my breath. Help me slow down so I can seek Your wisdom and consider the options for the decisions I have to make. Amen.
