Deliberate Before Acting
The fool acts impulsively. He does whatever he thinks of doing and he does not listen to what anyone else has to say.
The wise person, however, does not rely only on his own judgment. Rather, he thinks the matter through thoroughly, and consults other wise people before taking action.
We learn this story from the first book in the bible, where even G-d consults the angels, before he makes man. When Moses questions the wisdom of writing in the bible, that there is an us,
because people might misinterpret the word us, G-d replies "people who don't want to believe can find anything they want to support their position. The fact that people will misinterpret my words, is not
justification for consulting others before a major decision!!"
Avoid doing things impulsively that you might regret. Practice the art of "thinking." and discussing with others. It's habit forming and enjoyable!Love Yehuda
