Scripture Passage: Proverbs 4
What is wisdom? Wisdom is the ability to take knowledge and apply it in the right way. Foolishness is someone who is always surprised. When it comes to applying wisdom and making decisions, we can ask four questions as we wrestle with key decisions in our lives. Using the truths from proverbs, these four questions can help us make good decisions.
Four Questions for any Decision.
- What advice have I been given?
- What’s my real motive?
- What about others?
- What about the future?
ACTIVITY: Practice these questions with your kids.
- Have your kid(s) think of a decision that needs to be made.
Example: Should I watch that one show on Netflix. Should you go to a party? Should I take candy from the store without paying? Should you date that girl?
- Apply these four questions
- Discuss the answers
When you really gain an understanding of how much God loves you and that he has a purpose for your life, your choices will take on more importance! Our goal is not efficiency. Our goal is not even morality. Our goal is to bring honor and glory and praise to our God through our lives and our decisions!
