Continuing our series “What’s the Wise Thing to Do?” – last week’s lesson (I’m about a week behind on writing these posts) was with regard to how do you make decisions when you don’t actually know what the wise thing to do is? What do you do when you don’t have any experiences to draw from…or your decision could be clouded by a lot of emotion? If you’d like to hear the original message, CLICK HERE to download the mp3 file. Did you ever watch “Diary…” on MTV (not that I would endorse watching MTV – I think...

My church is currently on a series called, “Best Question Ever: What is the WISE thing to do?” Regardless of your faith…we’ve all been there: in light of past experiences and/or circumstances, what is the right thing to do?
