Make the Right Decision, Not Just a Fast One – Rick Warren

“Daniel went at once to see the king and requested more time to tell the king what the dream meant.”

Daniel 2:16 (NLT)

When you’re asked to do something that’s impossible, you start by refusing to panic and by getting all the facts. Then, you ask for more time.
Why? Because your biggest temptation in the midst of crisis is to be impulsive. You’re typically not thinking rationally. You’re thinking emotionally. You want to make a quick decision.

But it’s more important to make the right decision than a fast decision.

A wrong decision is wrong, no matter how quickly you make it. So step back, take a deep breath, calm down, and talk to God.

Daniel did this when the king asked him to interpret a dream (after the king ordered the killing of the first few people who tried): “Daniel went at once to see the king and requested more time to tell the king what the dream meant” (Daniel 2:16 NLT).

He gives us a great model for dealing with a high-pressure situation by asking for more time and then talking to God about it.

You’re more likely to make a better decision when you don’t rush to make a quick one. Take your time.

Talk It Over

Have you ever acted rashly when asked to do something really tough? How did that work out?
Why is it so easy to procrastinate when you’re in a difficult situation?
Who in your life needs to be reminded that taking their time is important?
