Four steps from John Piper on how to glorify God in your decision making. I think this is a better way to frame decision making than the commonly used phrase, “seeking God’s will.” God’s will for us is to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness (Matt. 6:33) and then all these things will be added to you.
- I pray that God will hallow his name in and through me.
- I try to meditate upon the Scriptures day and night, desiring to saturate my thinking with the structure of God’s thinking.
- I consciously pin my hope on the promise of God to work in everything for my good, so that my mind and heart are at rest in his mercy.
- As I confront moral choices during the day, if time and circumstances allow, I try to understand the effects of each choice on people’s lives.
