[Devotional]: Research Required!

“Desire without knowledge is not good—

    how much more will hasty feet miss the way!”

Proverbs 19:2

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you read Proverbs 19:2 (posted above)?

My initial reaction to that verse was, “WOW, REALLY?!” I’ve read through Proverbs several times, but on this particular day, Proverbs 19:2 hit home for me.

It brings me back to when I purchased my first car, Rosalina. I was so excited about having a car that I didn’t give myself the chance to fully inspect the car. All I could think was, “It looks good on the outside, and it runs fairly well. So, it must be a good car.

Listen, I didn’t have that car a couple of weeks before the problems started. I’m not talking about minor issues, either. I’m talking expensive issues. It seemed as though once I got one thing fixed, something else was going wrong. I kept that car for four and a half years before I decided to get rid of it. Having that car was a huge lesson that I will never forget: DO YOUR RESEARCH!

Although I spoke on the importance of researching before purchasing a car, this concept applies to all areas of life.

• Are you looking to change careers?
• Deciding whether or not to marry someone?
• Car shopping?
• Figuring out which church to become a member of?

Whatever decision lies ahead of you, please remember to do your research before making your final decision.
