Davidisms: It's Easier to Get In Than Out

Boy, have I learned this one through the years!

It’s easier to get in than out.

It’s far easier to make a thoughtful, carefully considered choice than to find ways later on to get out of a bad one. Over time, the bad choice often becomes an entangled mess. It’s like untangling spaghetti!

As Scripture says, “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance” (Proverbs 21:5).

Therefore, before making decisions, seek wise counsel. Ask the Lord to make the choice clear. Do your due diligence.

If the choice surrounds a person, look for traits like humility and a servant’s heart. Work ethic, integrity and honesty. These are often predictors of future success.

Your time is far better spent making a wise decision upfront rather than working regrettably afterwards to correct a bad one.

That’s because it’s always easier to get in than out.
