Why do we assume because we are adults and have lived 3 decades or more, that we know what is best for ourselves in all circumstances? I can’t tell you how many people I’ve encountered over the years who could have avoided serious life tragedies such as job loss, divorce, parenting blunders, and many others, if they had only sought wise counsel. Just because we are adults does not mean we have all the answers or the best solutions. This post is to provoke us to think about what or who is deciding what is best for our lives or assisting us to make wise decisions in difficult circumstances. Are you the only authority or examiner for your life? Is it the culture you live in that subconsciously dictates what is best for you? Could it be the biased opinion of one or more family members? Do you believe in God and if so, what does your God believe? Just some questions to provoke you to think. Life is too short to move forward on assumption. All of us should be learning from someone who can be objective, knows more and has more experience with a proven track record. Even a mentor needs a mentor, it keeps us on our toes and creates accountability. #Humility breeds true greatness. It is a wise person who knows when guidance is needed. Proverbs 20:15 There is gold and abundance of costly stones, but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
