Knowing God - Proverbs 19:2

(fp)

Desire without knowledge is not good,
and one who moves too hurriedly
misses the way.
Proverbs 19:2
 
Instant gratification. I'm increasingly believing that it is one of the greatest curses of our current age.
 
Not only do we want things, but we want them right now. And we don't stop to count the cost. Teens naturally enjoy friendships and fun more than school work ... then are surprised when career doors are closed to them. Companies want immediate profits and lay off the wise but costly experienced workers ... then are surprised when bankruptcy follows.
 
The Scriptures tell us that desire without counting the cost in every knowledgeable way is foolish. Indeed, moving too hurriedly -- without considering the long-term ramifications -- will lead us astray.
 
In what ways are you addicted to instant gratification?
 
In Christ's Love,
a guy who needs less candy
(instant gratification)
and more fruits and vegetables
