Book: Proverbs 14
“Only simpletons believe everything they’re told! The prudent carefully consider their steps.”
I received in the mail last week a letter from a supposed lawyer from another country. He said he had been doing some business in Canada and so mailed the letter from Ontario. He went on to say that due to the death of a person by the name of Glenn Foster passing away I was to receive 3.5 million dollars (USD) from a life insurance policy. He then, of course, went on to ask for my personal information so that he could process it.
In the past I have received similar letters and emails suggesting I was to inherit money from other estates (I do have to say they were usually a lot higher in the 20-40 million dollar range). I have listened to the news and read articles on the internet that have been misleading or provided false information. It is strange when you read an article about an event that you were at or observed and it sounds nothing like what you remember.
It is important that we are prudent and discerning with the information that we read, see and hear. There are many in this world who are not interested in the truth nor in the good of others. They have no problems telling lies and giving out misinformation if it helps their cause. They would suggest that “the end justifies the means” even though the end is questionable.
It is important that the information you use to make a decision has been thoroughly researched with a discerning mindset. Being prudent in the decision process will save you much grief. Take all of your decisions before the Lord for Him to guide you in.
