The expression may have become a cliché, but the question is the most important one we can teach our children to ask themselves. It only takes a few seconds, but those seconds could change the entire course of their lives.
Would Jesus stand up for the girl being teased! Would Jesus lie about where he was going? Would he take that drink?
This world offers endless temptations, and some of it can be a lot of fun-at least in the moment. Whether it’s us, a trusted friend, or an intriguing new acquaintance, sometimes we just want the opinion of someone for just about every decision we make. We need to encourage the only source that matters-the power of prayer!
We all get easily caught in the moment. Gods wisdom is the only true wisdom. Open your heart to God; let him show you the parts you are keeping from him, the decisions you save for yourself. Ask him for the courage to turn everything over to him!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek him in all you do, and he will show you which path to take!(proverbs 3:5-6)
