Daily Devotional – 10/9/17 “Common Sense!”

As I drove into work this morning, listening to the radio, I heard the lifeline question of the day. Here’s the dilemma. “A husband and wife are raising a son from the husband’s previous relationship. The husband’s mother, takes it upon herself, to invite the son’s mother to every family event even though she is bluntly disrespectful to the wife. What should the husband do?” I heard a few callers and some said, allow God to intervene. Listen, I am a Christian, who loves the Lord wholeheartedly. I believe and I trust Him. He is the head of my life. And as for me and my house … but chile look, that husband needs to put his mom in her place. Respectfully, of course.

I am not saying, he shouldn’t consult God but why does he have to wait for God to intervene when God has given him common sense? I am sure, he is grown enough to know right from wrong and his momma is all the way wrong. Yes we should consult God, through prayer and fasting but sometimes all it takes is common sense, especially if you are in God. Common sense is like, trusting your child to make the right decision when you are not around. This is what God expects of us. He expects us to make decisions, with our sound mind. The bible says in Proverbs 2:6-7, “For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.” Stop accepting any and everything beloved when God gives us the ability to use common sense, in some situations. Yes, we should pray. Yes, we should seek God. Yes, some situations calls for a “wait on God moment” but sometimes you need to tap into your common sense.
