Cocked hat? It often seems right to us when starting out on a project or task that we felt in full command of; but, in the end, what may seem right to us might be colored by my pride. pride that can through what seemed simple into a cocked hat.
Think about it. When it seems right to us when we start out; in the end, colored by our pride, may have disastrous results. The way of the wise man is to seek counsel. The way of the fool is to put the counsel into himself.
God’s Word tells us: “The way of the fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice” (Proverbs 12:15).
We must be careful to seek the counsel of God and others before making decisions of lasting significance. A good rule of thumb is when we are absolutely certain that what we are doing is the right thing, and there is little doubt in our minds that we have taken a wrong turn, it is probably time to stop and examine the course we are on. Any fool can make mistakes, but it takes a special kind of fool, a prideful one, to take a mistake and translate it into folly.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when there are important decisions to be made each of us seek out the right counsel; first from the Lord and then from those who may be and often are wiser than we are.” Amen!
