The ONE THING for today

Three of the most important words in the world…

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

There are three words that I’d like for you to tattoo in your mind today, they are: “And then what?” and-then-what

Just before you say whatever it is you are about to say, or just before you do whatever it is you are about to do, ask yourself, “And then what?”

Minimally, this question is like a caution light–it reminds you to make needed adjustments before moving forward.  But asking yourself, “And than what?” can also be like a stop sign–keeping you from saying something or doing something that you will later regret.

Or to use another metaphor: It’s to late to worry about the damage a bullet might cause after you’ve pulled the trigger; it’s better to think, “And then what?” before pulling the trigger.  It will save you a lot of grief.
