A confused student asked me some questions through text messaging a few days ago. I gave her some advice, but she was reluctant to believe me. “But I asked God for a sign,” she said. She was mistaking an ex-boyfriend’s double-minded behavior as a sign from God (a sign that they would get back together).
This kind of thing happens all of the time. I’d like to encourage all of you to read my Making Wise Decisions series in which I explain why sign-seeking is not a good way to discern God’s will.
