Another example of the Bible being practical for our day. Now this scripture may sound like common sense, but if it was we would have a lot less problems. This pretty much encourages us to plan ahead, consider our steps, examine our path. Young people and even older people seem to have to go through ALL the bumps in,life before they find a comfort spot, mostly due to poor planning.
