Before we can act, we need to understand ... 

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path. - Psalm 143:10

Taking time to understand the perspectives of the people we serve and the complexities of any issue helps us avoid a "Ready, Fire, Aim!" result.
