“The naïve believes everything, but the sensible man considers his steps” (Proverbs 14:15).
When you get where you’re going, where will you be when you get there? Do you have a plan? Goals? What deliberate, proactive steps are you taking to see them accomplished? Each day presents choices and decisions that either move us toward our goals or detract from them. To consider your steps is to give weight to the consequence of any action. We cannot naively meander through the day thinking that things just happen.
