Where do you go when you need to make an important decision? We all have our favorite places to go for reflective thought and prayer when we need to make decisions with major consequences. If you live near the mountains or the ocean, you might have a quite spot there where you get alone and reflect.
I recently spoke with one pastor who advised his church members to go to a graveyard to make those decisions. While at first this idea might seem morbid to some of us, I really believe his idea was a good one. The reason being, we will all eventually wind up in a graveyard. At that point, when your soul is in eternity, how will the different options you are considering appear?
That exercise could give us a valuable perspective that will bring us a great sense of peace both short term and in the long run.
Remember, making “graveyard decisions” could give you the perspective you need to best redeem the time.
