Passion, Haste and Knowledge – Proverbs 19:2

Even zeal is not good without knowledge,
and the one who acts hastily sins.


Simply doing things more quickly with enthusiasm does not necessarily mean that good will be accomplished. This combo, passion and haste, can actually cause more trouble than it resolves if the one who is acting does not have knowledge. Most all godly activity is based in knowledge and forethought. Ignorant passion is worse than useless, especially when speedily dispensed. Engage your mind and act with passion.
