How To Make Better Decisions By Asking The Best Question Ever

Regrets, we all have them.  Can you think of someone you wish you hadn’t met? An emotion you wish you’d have controlled? A job you would rather not have taken? A piece of cake, you should have left on the buffet table? Really, regrets are all around us. Some with bigger consequences than others.

Just so you don’t feel alone in any of your regrets, here are some statistics.

Personal fitness: 36% are obese, 33% overweight

Personal finance: 76% are living paycheck to paycheck

Personal relationships: 50% of all marriages end in divorce

The trouble is we only know how big some decisions are in the rearview mirror. In the moment we lack experience, focus, or discernment to really understand the consequences of our decisions. This lack of understanding leads to regrets.

How can we be equipped to make better decisions before we face them? What if there was a question that would clarify the best option for ninety percent of the decisions we have to make in life? A question that answers just about everything?

God inspired the apostle Paul to record words of wisdom that are as true today, as the day they were written!        

Be very careful then how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:15
