How to make wise decisions

Yes, this may be simplistic, but it’s still helpful.  Written by Gordon S. Jackson, this came my way via NavPress‘s monthly Bible Study Zone email and provides steps for making wise decisions…

1.  Is your decision in accordance with Scripture?
—– If “Yes,” then proceed to next question.
—– If “No,” don’t go any further.

2.  Does your decision find support in your prayers?
—– If “Yes,” then proceed to next question.
—– If “No,” don’t go any further.

3.  Does the advice of others you trust support your decision?
—– If “Yes,” then proceed to next question.
—– If “No,” don’t go any further.

4.  Have circumstances made it possible for you to act on your decision?
—– If “Yes,” then proceed to next question.
—– If “No,” consider the matter closed or go back to Scripture and prayer.

5.  Having reached this point, do you have a sense of peace about your decision?
—– If “Yes,” then you can feel confident in your decision.
—– If “No,” consider the matter closed or go back to Scripture and prayer.

  1. Interesting…I just spoke on decision making at church this past Sunday. I spoke from Prov. 3:5-6. Was planning on writing on the topic myself.

    Thanks for this.
