Don’t Be Hasty…

Read: Proverbs 25-26
Marked: Proverbs 25:8, Do not go hastily to court; For what will you do in the end, When your neighbor has put you to shame?

While the verse speaks of the court of law, and while it’s sometimes necessary, we should never be hasty about it. Unfortunately, our society is quick to be litigious.

However, there is another court that many tend to go to and that is the court of public opinion. No matter the issue or cause you will always find those who will agree with you in this court, even if you are in the wrong.

Best not be hasty to give yourself over to this court either. Voltaire said, “Opinion has caused more trouble on this little earth than plagues or earthquakes.”

And the apostle Paul warned, “Do not be wise in your own opinion.” (Romans 12:16). Good advice.
