Proverbs 19:2 ” It’s not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.”

When we allow our desires, appetites, and longings to overrule our wisdom and understanding… and when we rush into making choices that are good but not the best…two things happen. We compromise ourselves and settle for less than God’s best for us. Our choice may seem good enough, but it falls pathetically short of what God has for us. Proverbs 14:12 reminds of this when it reads, “There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death.” Anytime we compromise, we put in jeopardy our relationship with God…for anytime we settle for just good enough we’re risking the chance to miss His best and sin against Him. But God assures us in Isaiah 30:21 that He will help us make those best choices if we will but listen…”Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ ”
