Disregarding Good Judgment

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 10: 5-11

When we choose to act imprudently--with wrong motivation, pushing our own agenda, forcing action according to our own timing--situations don't end well. We bring about harm to ourselves (our improper actions come back to bite us), we cause strife for ourselves and others, we create more work and many times a job that isn't done well.

Seeing as none of us are perfect, we've all chosen to ignore good judgment at some point. Think back to one of those situations. What's one lesson you learned? How did your experience line up with what we read from Ecclesiastes today? Was there a particular verse that stood out to you and why? Tami

Verse 10 stands out as an excellent reminder of the value of taking time to make proper preparation for a task, rather than rushing into it.

Verse 6 stood out to me because indiscretion sometimes causes us to think we are wise so we act out of the will of God to fulfill some need of the flesh to get the approval of man ,we try so hard to please man when our devotion should be to God. This verse also led me back to Haman and Mordecai.so in the end it shows us that trusting in God to give us guidance through his wisdom is better than trust in our own strength
