1st C of Character!


Cautious:
  •  Careful and slow to weigh risks / contingencies.
  • Prudent men foresee evil and hide (Pr 22:3; 27:12).
  • They also look well to their going (Pr 14:15).
  • It is true … it is better to be safe than sorry.
  • Haste makes waste … wise men are not hasty.
  •  An ounce of prevention = a pound of cure. True!
  • Faithful men are more like tortoises than hares!
  • He that hasteth with his feet sinneth (Pr 19:2).
  • What trait gives more hope to a fool (Pr 29:20)?
  • Haste exalts folly and brings want (Pr 14:29; 21:5).
