What foundation do you build your life on? What grid do you run your behaviors, decisions and actions through? For me, that foundation/grid is Scripture. More specifically, the Bible.
When I didn’t have a specific foundation or grid, what usually guided my decisions, behaviors, and actions was emotion. Defaulting to emotions didn’t work too well for me, because my actions were based more on what felt best in the moment rather than a foundational values based decision.
Even though I have Scripture as my foundation, I still need to choose to follow it and apply what it says in my life. Although it can be challenging, I’ve found that Scripture provides me with a very solid foundation for making wise decisions. A much more stable foundations than emotions alone.
