It's good to see Luffy rush in and it not solve his problems. He's not gonna get far here. The assumption that he is rushing in and that it is the RIGHT thing to do seems a misinterpretation.

This battle is set out as a chess game - you can't go right for the king from the beginning.

Whitebeard knows a trap has been set but can only speculate as to what it is. No wonder he doesn't want to rush in and get killed.

He is clearly amused by Luffy, which is why he is willing to help him. Ultimately, though, he is using him as a chesspiece.
