Proverbs 17:24 ” A discerning man keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.”

Humans perceive through their senses.  But without good judgment constantly weighing how we feel to what’s morally right…we can easily go astray.  When we allow our feelings to overrule our understanding…we jump from one thing to another with no forethought – no discipline – simply doing what feels good at the moment.  But by having wisdom always in view, we will consider things through eyes of Godly insight and sensibility…not by fickle, momentary feelings.

Proverbs 27:12 ” The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”

As human beings,  we have to learn some things  the hard way.  Growing up, we think of ourselves as invincible.  We take crazy chances.  We egg each other on…double dog daring…and sometimes paying for that  foolishness.  So as grown adults,  we should have gained some wisdom and good judgment  by now.  But how many people do we see that just haven’t learned that lesson?  Risky behaviors will eventually catch up with everyone…for no one is exempt.
