Too much cake.

Sometimes I eat too much cake. I’m actually full and I know if I eat more cake I’ll feel sick. I eat more cake anyway. Please don’t follow my cake-eating example.

Instead, listen to the wise advice of Proverbs 27:12 (https://bit.ly/2EI4Fjj): ‘A prudent (wise) person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.’

Can you think of situations you tend to head into, knowing full well there’s danger up ahead?

Ask God for the wisdom and strength to stop where you are, and take precautions – instead of carrying on anyway, and suffering because of it.
