Think before you act.
For week three, we look to something Solomon wrote in Proverbs 22:3. Wise people see danger and go to a safe place, but childish people keep going and suffer for it (NIrV). Without thinking, people can rush into a situation and soon discover that they are in trouble. Solomon warns us to make sure we know what we’re facing before moving forward with a decision.
Think before you act. Kids face all sorts of decisions where they have to decide if they will keep going or pause to evaluate the best option. These decisions happen as they learn to navigate friendships, technology, and priorities. We hope kids discover that pausing to ask themselves, “What’s the wise choice in this situation?” can save them from getting hurt.
