The Wise Man Looks Ahead

WISE AND FOOL.jpeg

“The wise man looks ahead. The fool attempts to fool himself and won’t face facts”(Proverbs 14:8 TLB).
The clever person knows what to do that’s why he is wise. But a silly one is a fool which he thinks that he knows what to do.
Many individuals in life twitch out well, but they end up developing off-color because they don’t plan for the drawbacks. But the Bible says the wise person looks onward and faces realism.

As we create plans for our imminent, we all face downsides, such as cultural commotions, voices of uncertainty, enticing shortcuts, and inauspicious delays. Just look at Noah: He faced a variation of difficulties after God told him to build the ark, but he overpowered them — and you can, too.

Nowadays, this doesn’t mean God will give you a goalmouth as impudent as building an ark, but I pray he’ll give you a great goal line — even an impudent or risky one — for your next 10 years.

The Bible says, “The wise man looks in advance. The fool attempts to fool himself and won’t face truths” (Proverbs 14:8 TLB). By looking ahead, we’ll not only be equipped to spot the difficulties when they come into our lives, we’ll also be fortified to make plans that help us become the person God wants us to be.
