Last year, I watched a Harlem Globetrotter hit two half-court shots in a row. It was amazing stuff and I imagine it took a lot of practice. Most of my half-court shots miss by a mile…
Making important decisions by yourself is like taking a half-court shot with no practice.
Making important decisions with prayer and counsel is more like a lay-up. There’s a much higher probability of success.
Take the lay-up. Ask God for wisdom and get a lot of advice before you decide.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. – Proverbs 3:5
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice. – Proverbs 12:15
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. – James 1:5
Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. – Proverbs 15:22
