Do Nothing

There is a basic principle in mussar that whenever a person is unsure whether it would be Hashem's will for him to take a certain action, he should refrain from taking that action. This we see in "they encamped in Haradah", for haradah means fear. Whenever a person is unsure whether what he wishes to do is proper or not, he should remain where he is and do nothing.

(Mei HaShiloach)
