The school year is almost over!!!!! Can you believe another year has come and gone? It’s an exciting time for those graduating from Highschools and Universities. But what are you going to do now?
Times of major transition force us to make important and difficult decisions. Seasons of major decision making can be one of the most anxious times in life. How can we reduce that anxiety and make the best decisions possible?
Jesus offers the perfect example of decision making, the perfect guide for our lives, and he is the perfect counselor for our greatest needs. Let us turn to him for all things, and especially for our direction in our lives. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
1 Corinthians 10:31 offers the key to the great Christian life–“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Everything we do should be for God’s glory. Jonathan Edwards resolved long ago to do everything for God’s glory. Edwards began his list of resolutions with the following: “Resolved, that I will do whatsoever I think to be most to God’s glory, and my own good, profit and pleasure, in the whole of my duration, without any consideration of the time, whether now, or never so many myriads of ages hence. Resolved to do whatever I think to be my duty, and most for the good and advantage of mankind in general. Resolved to do this, whatever difficulties I meet with, how many and how great soever.” His 4th resolution was this, “Resolved, never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends to the glory of God; nor be, nor suffer it, if I can avoid it.”
Edwards resolved to read over his 70 resolutions every week. Let be resolved to do everything for God’s glory every second of our lives.
