Memory Verse

“Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise”

Audio Icon   Proverbs 19:20



In this episode, Lucille had to make a difficult decision. She asked someone for advice. What will you do the next time you have to make a difficult decision? Here are three ways that you can look to God in order to make a good decision:

  1. Read the Bible. Psalm 119: 1 says, “I treasure your word above all else; it keeps me from sinning against you."
  2. Pray to God for help. James 1:5 says, “If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking.”
  3. Ask people that you can trust. Proverbs 13:10 says, “Too much pride causes trouble. Be sensible and take advice.”

So what should you do when you have a decision to make and you don't know what to do? Do what Joshua did—look for God’s answer in Him and in the people around you.

Want to dig deeper and learn more decision-making? Check out Proverbs 3:5-6, Psalm 37:7 and James 4:7.


Identify a difficult decision that you are struggling with and design a 'plan of action' for making those tough decisions. Maybe some difficult decisions are what sport to play, or what project to tackle next, or how to confront a friend. Make sure your plan includes these three things: the Bible, prayer and the advice people you trust. Make a list of who you are going to consult when you face a difficult decision.
