Have you ever wanted to say to someone, “Didn’t you see this coming?”
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. – Proverbs 27:12
We see what we are looking for and we hear what we are listening for. (“Confirmation Bias”)
- The prudent acknowledge what they desperately don’t want to see.
- The simple see the same danger, but “live as if life is not connected…the present becomes the past and it just stays there.” – Andy Stanley
Prudent: Evaluate relationships based on where they are headed.
Naïve: Evaluate relationships based on where they stand currently.
Prudent: View debt as a path with a destination.
Naïve: View debt as an event.
When you see trouble coming, don’t ignore it. -- DO something.
Is there something you are trying desperately not to see?
Is there anything you are trying desperately not to hear?
Be like the prudent – not the simple.
NOW is the time to….. Because….
NOW is better than later. -- Now will make later better.
