How To Make The Best Decisions

When we face important decisions, we need help. We gain a better perspective of Jesus when parents or mentors share their wisdom with us. A friend’s timely advice helps us more clearly see how our choices will change our lives in positive or negative ways.

Making the best decisions starts with listening to the best wisdom.

God always has something for us to learn. He speaks to us through the Bible, other people, circumstances, and in so many ways (Job 33:14). We’ll receive the best change in perspective when we don’t just hear God, but when we listen to what He’s saying.

Learning to listen to God isn’t something we check off a box or put behind us like a one-time task. Listening to God is an ongoing part our lives because we’re in an ongoing relationship with Him (John 10:27).

The beautiful thing about spending more and more time with God is that we become more like Him. Because we’re in a relationship with Jesus, we have the opportunity to grow in His wisdom. We learn to make better decisions and express the love for others like the love He shows all of us.
