Avoidance is a powerful ally when it comes to dealing with problems, trouble and danger. But how can we do that?
We cando that by looking, thinking and planning ahead! We can listen to the weather forecasts so that you can be better prepared for certain inclement weather.

Proverbs 22:3 (GNT) warns that “Sensible people will see trouble coming and avoid it, but an unthinking person will walk right into it and regret it later.”
