What are the implications?

  • Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foresees evil, and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

Today I’d like to introduce you to an important word—the word is: implication.

Before you take action ask yourself, “What are the implications of what I’m about to do?”ethical implications

Before you make a statement ask yourself, “What are the implications if I say this?”

You see, the temptation is to be blinded by the moment. However, just because something seems right at the moment doesn’t mean that it is really the best thing to do. A rush of emotions is not the same thing as a reasoned decision. Just because something is a bargain doesn’t mean you can really afford it. I think you get the picture…

Just think of the sorrows that could have been avoided—only if people would have stopped long enough to consider the implications of what they were about do.

Don’t be one of those sad statistics; be prudent by adding the word “implication” to your vocabulary. There are very, very few “snap decisions” that you must make in life, but there are many decisions that will be just as good after you’ve sat on them twenty-four hours in order to consider the implications.

  1. This is great, and incredibly needed.

    This goes both ways too I think. What we imply for good can, at times, go much farther than actually spelling something out.

    Blessings to you and your family.
