The Best Question Ever
Chapter OneSession 1 The Best Question Ever
Every time we make a decision, it is preceded by a series of questions. Sometimes we ask them out loud; sometimes we simply process them in our subconscious. We ask questions like "How much can I afford?" "What are the risks?" "How will this feel?" "How much will I make?" "How much could I lose?" "What are my chances?" Whether you realize it or not, the questions you ask yourself eventually determine your decision.
As a general rule, people operate by two primary tenets: First, we want to get the most out of life; and second, we want to avoid getting into trouble. Therefore, as we evaluate our options in a decision, we tend to focus on whether or not our choices will violate any rules or commandments. If they don't, we often assume they are acceptable. Whether it's a financial decision, a moral choice, a business move, or a relationship, our tendency is to see how close we can get to the edge-and then make our decision accordingly.
But with this approach, many Christians simply ask the wrong questions. According to Scripture, the question is not whether something is moral, ethical, legal, or harmful. For Christians, there's another question that's even more important than those. In this session, we'll discover the Best Question Ever when it comes to making decisions that can impact our lives.
