Learning to read between the “lines of rhyme” is especially essential when synthesizing scripture and words of wisdom. Scripture was not designed to entertain, its sole purpose:
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, So that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Proverbs 12:2 teaches us about the dangers of going off half-cocked. Modern-day examples of such can be compared to going into to battle without the appropriate combat gear, or enthusiastically and with authority speaking about things you have little knowledge of as though you do.
Most adults can probably easily relate to the latter. Big egos coupled with small minds characterize the substance of people who always seem eager to lend advice, perceived wisdom, or misguided direction.
Their haste always leads to waste, because what they have to offer falls short due to lack of preparation. Does this “MO” sound familiar? If so, perhaps it’s time to change your ways before the consequences of “haste” cause you to waste this precious thing called life.
One of the most rewarding gifts in life is “maturity” because it forces one to slow down, study situations before responding to them, while consulting with past experiences.
That said, of course there will always be people who act on impulse, and engage in haste riddled behavior, but the older they get “Father Time” unapologetically handicaps the ability to make hasty decisions. For many that is a saving grace.
Over the course of your life, “how much time, money, and love have you wasted doing things in haste?” If you’re honest the answer is probably too much! ~Ministerneecy ~
