Isn’t this a good one? I am somewhat of an impulsive person in my thinking and actions. Unfortunately, this impulsiveness has gotten me into much trouble over my lifetime. I don’t want to be this way. I’m reading the book of Proverbs right now, and there are so many references to not being impulsive but being wise. I cannot even begin to quote the references to this because there are so many! I know God knew we would all need these verses.
Proverbs 12:15 says, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.” I think the way for me to subdue my impulsiveness in decision making might just be to hearken or listen more to counsel through my personal reading and meditation of God’s Word and hearing the Word taught from the pulpit. I don’t want to be a fool in any way, and I think I just might be able to avoid that more and more, with God’s help, by listening to His counsel.
Sounds good to me!
