STOP AND THINK – Think twice before you act. (From Aesop’s Fables)

Many of us are impetuous; we just can’t wait to forge ahead, thinking all will be right. The carpenter’s rule is similarly good advice: “Measure twice, cut once.” Some people think and plan so long, they never seem to get started. But for many of us it’s the other way around. How wise it would be to slow down enough to think carefully before we take action.

Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? (Luke 14:28)
