“The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.” Proverbs 14:18 (ESV)
Short thinking will often lead to ruin because our God expects us to use the brain He gave us. We may live simple lives, but our minds are meant to keep us from the trap of emotional immediate gratification. Biblical Christians think ahead and consider the implications of today’s behaviors and decisions in light of the gospel and the future Kingdom.
Let’s pray today that we would think as Jesus did and look ahead toward the glory of God.
