Measure twice, cut once.
The lesson behind this advice extends beyond the field of carpentry and medicine. In fact, the application is fitting for most areas of life, especially leadership.
Leadership credibility increases when decisions are based on additional information gained or counsel received indicating the time taken to measure twice.
How different will outcomes be if we take time to investigate before making decisions that compromise our relationship with God and His people?
Measuring twice makes it possible to insure accuracy before making decisions that carry great consequential impact.
Our leadership rests in the balance of this advice.
