Do Christian Parents Seek God’s Wisdom: A Creative Christian

Posted on: December 9, 2010

Stu Andrews shares his reflections on decision-making. While specifically relating to parenting, his reflections are applicable to any decision-making. He marks two ground-rules:

  1. You won’t get it right according to everyone, and not everyone will get it right according to you.
  2. You must humble yourself to acknowledge that you may be wrong.

No matter what decision you make, you’ll always please some and disappoint others. There’s just no other way around it. However, if you are humble, and allow yourself to acknowledge that you might be wrong, you then open yourself up to gaining wisdom on the issue, and through seeking God’s wisdom, you search out the best decision through his wisdom.

What’s your thoughts on decision-making? Do you seek out the Lord’s wisdom for your decisions? Let me know in the comments.

“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” Proverbs 3:13-15

What does it mean, as parents who love the Lord Jesus, to seek out God’s Wisdom in parenting?

Granted, I don’t have a definitive answer. All I have is what I read in the Bible, what I have experienced myself, and what I’ve seen from other Parents (including my own).

Wow, hey there Ben! Got a nice surprise just now seeing a backlink to my post and followed it here.

I see you (from the About page) are from the Uniting Church over the other side of Australia. Nice!

Good to meet you.

No problems Stu! Thank you for the post 🙂

While I am from the Uniting Church, I only work there. I’m actually Salvation Army (though also from Church of Christ and Anglican traditions in the past). But yes, the other side is very nice. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
