How do we make decisions? What aspects of our Christian faith can help and guide us to choose wisely? Here are three points to keep in mind:
- Inward - the wisdom that already exists in our hearts/minds
- Outward - the people in my life who offer wise counsel and support
- Upward - the way we engage our faith to call down wisdom from Heaven
Choices confront us all the time. When we look in, out, and up we make the best decisions possible - drawing on all the resources that God provides.
