Proverbs 13:23 “Much food [is in] the tillage of the poor: but there is [that is] destroyed for want of judgment.”
Proverbs 13:23 “The poor might have good land that produces plenty of food, but bad decisions can take it away” (ERV)
Mark 6:23 “And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.”
It was Herod’s birthday and he became extremely happy when the young damsel danced and praised him to high heavens. He made a decision and even though he became very guilty and sad, he had to live with the consequences of his action.
Mark 6:25 “And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked saying I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.”
Mark 6:26 “And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him he would not reject her.”
One quick decision at a moment of extreme excitment turned king Herod into a murderer!
King David nearly became a murderer too when he was extremely angry but for the intervention of Abigail (study 1Samuel 25).
1Samuel 25:32 “And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me:”
1Samuel 25:33 “And blessed be thy advice, and blessed be thou, which hast kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with mine own hand.”
Try as much as possible not to make decisions when in either of these moods.
Five: Don’t make decisions when you are tired; either physically or mentally. Tiredness forces you to make wrong decisions. The devil didn’t come to tempt Jesus when he was vibrant, he came when he knew Jesus had fasted for forty days and was now tired, physically and mentally. Jesus knew better than to fall for such a trick though. A tired mind can be easily manipulated.
