Take Enough Time - Integrity Moments - June 22

Take Enough Time

When I’m the person in authority, slowing down and being thorough is my job. It’s not optional. This means stepping back, listening, observing, taking plenty of notes, studying, doing research, and getting advice from wise people.

Proverbs 20:8 teaches, “When a king sits in judgment, he weighs all the evidence, distinguishing the bad from the good.”

Many decisions can be biased if we don’t hear both sides of the story. It takes effort and wisdom to gather and weigh all the evidence.

Whether or not you're the king over an organization, you're the king of your life. Your decisions can have a big impact on many other people.

When making life impacting decisions, slow down and be thorough. Hasty judgment makes for bad decisions that can have expensive repercussions.
