“Also, it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who hurries his footsteps errs” (Proverbs 19:2).
When developing a matrix for decision-making, the teaching of God’s word is always the starting reference. Another element that must be considered is time. Am I feeling crunched? Hurried? Why the rush? God is not the author of confusion, so when I’m feeling conflicted and pressed, it’s a red flag. Instant gratification rarely brings lasting satisfaction. Waiting brings clarity.
