Part 1 - Question Everything (Andy Stanley)
Every day brings questions. Should I stay? Should I go? Buy it? Sell it? Start it? Stop it? Did you know there's a question that makes it easy to determine the answer to all other questions? It's true. All you have to do is ask it! Ephesians 5:15-16
Part 2 - Musical Chairs (Andy Stanley)
Solomon, the third king of Israel, wrote more about wisdom than any other biblical writer. He was considered by some to be the wisest man who ever lived. In his writing, he laid out three kinds of people who lack wisdom: the simple lack experience; fools know the difference between right and wrong, but don't care; and mockers not only know the difference between right and wrong but are critical of those who choose to do right.
Eventually, people in each of these categories need wisdom...but they may not find it. Proverbs 9:7-8; Proverbs 1:20-33
Part 3 - Time Over Time (Andy Stanley)
Scripture says God has determined the number of your days. You can make more money and you can make more friends, but you can't make more time. You can count your money and your friends, but you can't count time. In light of that truth, knowing what to do with your time matters. It's vital that you use your time wisely. Job 14:5; Ephesians 5:15-16
Part 4 - Edged Out (Andy Stanley)
When it comes to temptation and decision-making, we all look for loopholes. When tempted, we look for excuses to tell ourselves yes when we should tell ourselves no. We ask, "Is there anything wrong with this? Is it illegal? Will it hurt anyone?" But it's a bad idea to assume that if something is not wrong, it's right. Our decision-making filter shouldn't be based on what's permissible, but on what's wise. In no area is this more important than decisions related to our sexual expression. There's no area where we're prone to more self-deception. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20
Part 5 - Hold My Hand (Andy Stanley)
You always have something working against you when making personal decisions: you. Personal decisions are emotional, yet emotionally charged environments aren't ideal for decision-making. Your emotions make the obvious less obvious. This is why you're probably better at managing someone else's money than your own. It's why you know exactly what your neighbor needs to do about his marriage, but have no clue how to improve your own. It's why your kids baffle you, while a complete stranger's just need a good spanking.
When it comes to making decisions, we have a real problem: It's next to impossible to hear the voice of wisdom when emotions are raging. Proverbs 19:20
Part 6 - The Beginning (Andy Stanley)You are painting a picture entitled Your Life. It's made up of a series of decisions. And you don't get to hide your early endeavors in the attic. You get only one canvas. Will you do it yourself or will you let someone guide your hand? Proverbs 9:10; Psalm 111:10
