Yesterday’s discussion at home was interesting. Here’s the question: Can you back up all your decisions with scripture? The topic came up because the author of a blog I read posted the statement that “I think it is wrong for Christians in America to have their children in government controlled schools”. I’ll let you read the most recent post, the original posts, and the comments on your own. There were several things I read that prompted the discussion we had. It was even more interesting because my oldest son told us of a big decision made by someone we know. This person said she “felt called” to do something. So on top of the scripture-backing-up-your-decisions-discussion, we had the you’re-not-supposed-to-make-decisions-based-on-feelings-so-how-can-you-tell-if-you’re-called discussion. Whoa! Deep stuff! Needless to say, it was a very late night. But a good night.
So I’m curious. What do you think? Can you (or should you be able to) back up all your decisions with scripture? How do you know when God has called you to do something?
