Paris Anyone?

Lets say I want to go to Paris.  It is one thing to make the decision to go, but I need to know where Paris is and how to get there.  

I cannot drive my car there from America.  I will most likely have to take an airplane.  I will need to know much money I need to buy the airplane tickets.  How much do I need for hotel rooms, food and tours I want to take?  Who will take care of my three chihuahuas  while I am away?  One needs knowledge.  

So it is with faith and virtue.  At times, despite my good intentions, I have learned that my actions were harmful more than they were helpful. Research and learning is necessary even in the world of faith (2 Peter 1:5).
