While there is something to be said for having big dreams, this proverb points out the folly of chasing fantasies (having eyes that wander to “the ends of the earth,” see 12:11).  How much better to align your goals with God’s, being the kind of person, he wants you to be! Such goals (wisdom, honesty, patience, love) may not seem exciting, but they will determine your eternal future.  Take time to think about your dreams and goals, and make sure they cover the really important areas of life.
