There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going. (Keith Minier, pastor)

With GPS and Google Maps, you would think that you’d never get lost again, wouldn’t you? And yet, those helps aren’t always correct, and sometimes we even try to take a shortcut. A lot of wives cringe when their husbands try to do that. Minier’s point, of course, has more to do with life decisions than merely finding the best route to your physical destination. Hear the words of the biblical writer:

Hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. (Proverbs 21:5b)
