Decisions, decisions, decisions. Should I accept this job? Should I marry this person? Should I listen to that person’s advice? How do I know what to do?
If I had a dollar for every time I get asked that question, I’d be a rich man. Young and old, rich and poor, married and single, spiritual and non-spiritual people – all struggle with the same question: how do I know the “right” thing to do in the situation I’m in?
This question isn’t an easy one; there’s no simple answer. There’s no formula that I can give you that says “Say this prayer, read this passage and you’ll know what to do.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. We aren’t talking about math class where everything breaks down into a nice and neat formula. We’re talking about life and life isn’t always black and white.
So how then are we supposed to figure it out?
Recently something struck me about Jesus and His ministry and how He always knew what to do. I was reading Mark 1 and in it, I realized something about Jesus that I had never fully grasped before. He seemed kinda inconsistent, didn’t He?
