I have had a lot of time to think over the past few weeks. For those of you who know me well, you know that I have 5-6 people in my life that speak into different aspects of it. Be it ministry, my marriage, my emotional state, etc. I am the kind of guy who respects someone who can listen to different opinions and make a decision based on those opinions, maybe even a different one than they would have made alone. I often call upon my ‘advisors’ or mentors to help me make more informed decisions. I wonder though how often I make a decision, then ask advice, to make myself feel good about that process, and go with the original decision. Maybe my original thought was right, but maybe sometimes it was wrong, and maybe I went with it anyway. I am not saying that I DO, do that but that I am trying to figure out if I do . . . just an area of growth, or re-evaluation in my life right now.
Do you listen to the advice and opinions of others in your life?
