Proverbs 14.15 — Don’t be so gullible

“The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps.” This is not gullibility, it’s uncritical thinking. Uncritical thinking makes you more vulnerable to deception and mistaken thinking. The cure is a healthy dose of skepticism, reflective thinking, and research. The fool says, “Whatever.” The wise say, “Let me think about this.”
