Questions I’m Helping Someone Ponder Today…

Since yesterday, I’ve been a sounding board of sorts for a friend, someone pretty close, who’s asking questions and looking for good answers. Questions like…

  • It says at least twice in the Bible that “there is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” Does this mean that everything that seems right to me is in reality the wrong thing? If I’m torn between two courses of action, and one seems right, is the other one automatically the correct choice – no matter how impractical or imprudent it may be?
  • In light of the Gideon story, is it ever legitimate to ask for confirmation with a “fleece?” In what types of situations is such confirmation advisable or acceptable?
