“The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with great confidence.”  Proverbs 14:16 NLT

It is a great thing to have confidence, but beware that it doesn’t keep you from doing your due diligence before heading into places you’ve never been before.  The proverb speaks of being cautious in order avoid danger, you can’t avoid what you do not see while you blindly run in.

It’s like going into a dark room.  The fool will rush in only to find himself on the floor after a few steps and tripping over an obstacle, but the wise man will feel the wall to see if there is a light switch, and take his time to walk slowly that his senses may be full aware of his surroundings.

That is what we are to do with the various choices we will make in life.  Instead of running full steam ahead only to fall flat on our face, feel around for the light switch, the Bible, the Word, the light of the world, and the light will guide you safely to your destination.

Be wise.
