Saturday is the day for some time for the family to be together.

Can you guess who made this important statement? “Be thankful for the bad things in life. For they opened our eyes to the good things you weren’t paying attention to before.” Well did you know who said it? Well you were right, it was Kermit the Frog. Ha ha!!! Yeah, that took me back too.


Our meditation for today is found in Prov. 19:2 “Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, And he sins who hastens with his feet.


Let’s pick out two thoughts from this verse:

1) It’s dangerous to live full

throttle without wisdom


2) To live in a cloud of haste

will result in waste


Now let’s go back and unpack these two thoughts:


One of the worst things for us to do is to strive to do good things in our life without being guided by knowledge.


Example: If your car won’t

start is it wise to

open the hood

and then hit it

with a hammer?


Hopefully your answer is

NO. Why, because your

doing something, YES, but

your adding to the

problem. Right? Your

acting without knowledge.


That’s why Solomon says “it is not good … to be without knowledge.


That’s why God has formed this great book (The Bible) to put in our heart & mind (soul).


Just like when the car won’t start you dig in to find out why? Your experience says what is commonly wrong is the battery, either corrosion, bad cell, cable loose, etc.


When life goes wrong dig into life’s manual - The Bible - for it’s answers. Become

Informed

Before

Leaving

Earth


Now let’s go on to the second truth:

2) He sins (to miss the

mark) when you get in a

hurry.


Ben Franklin was given

credit for his statement in

Poor Richards Almanac in

1727 “Haste makes waste.”


This statement was also

made by John Haywood

in 1678 in his proverb

collection.


But this verse makes the

same conclusion along

with Prov. 21:5.


So Go With God and He will guide you into all truth and at the same time cause your life to be

lived out with eternal purpose.
