Proverbs 14:16: The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence.
Have you wondered why speed breakers were designed and constructed on our roads? It is so that, motorists will apply some sense of control while driving. It keeps them cautious, reduces their haste and checks them. Having to drive in some areas without these bumps, will be an outright suicide.
Today, the world is almost accelerating faster than the wind. Everything is on a high speed. Fast food, fast lane, fast track, crashed courses, fast this and fast that – everyone you see, is in a hurry to achieve one thing or the other.
Being that peoples’ minds are set on achieving things faster than necessary; they care less about the consequences that follows their actions. The story of King Saul’s disobedience in 1 Samuel 15, points to the spirit of impatience. Had he waited for Samuel to perform the sacrifice accordingly, he wouldn’t have gotten himself into trouble.
What are you in a haste to achieve? Is it worth the hypertension? Success in life is not based on how fast you ran but, on how well you finished. Applying a little caution will help you readjust and be more tactical in your success strategy. Motorists who speed recklessly end up with either broken bones or below six feet – so do people who are in an undue haste to attain prominence, end up in destruction.
God is telling you to watch out for the danger sign ahead. Patience is a Christian virtue, although sadly, a lot of believers had deleted it from their lives. Being patient and careful in your life pursuits, doesn’t mean you are a weakling, it shows you are wise.
Take one day at a time and abstain from the inordinate quest that has overtaken the world. Know that, anyone who does anything without God ends up in a recycled struggle. What am I saying? It is in God to bless. His will is that you will prosper, at the same time, He doesn’t want you to end up in vanity.
