Proverbs 19:2

"Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good;
     haste makes mistakes."
One of the worst things you can do is move enthusiastically in the wrong direction. Enthusiasm is good, but you need to add knowledge to it. Do you have some passion that drives you? Make sure you take enough time to do "due diligence" so you can move not only enthusiastically but knowledgeably in the right direction.

Jeremiah 6:16, 21

"This is what the LORD says:
'Stop at the crossroads and look around.
     Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls.
     But you reply, "No, that's not the road we want!"'
Therefore, this is what the LORD says:
     'I will put obstacles in my people's path.
Fathers and sons will both fall over them.
     Neighbors and friends will die together.'"
The path of godliness leads to rest. The path of rebellion and sin is strewn with obstacles. God's desire is to give us rest, to bless us. There is only one way to experience that: obedience. And obedience is really trust, since that is what is commanded most by God. He wants us to trust him, and that will result in the blessing of rest.
