Good judgment comes from experience, and most of that comes from bad judgment. (Kerr L White, MD, author)
Our choices do make a significant impact on our lives, not only in the moment of choosing, but even more so further along in our lives. Bad judgments today might have immediate consequences (e.g., a speeding ticket), but repeating those choices regularly could result in a much more severe outcome. Making the right judgments today will have lasting benefits.
Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe (Proverbs 2:11).
