Don’t Make Decisions Driven By Fear (#7)
Fear can make people do crazy things.
Fear can make people do stupid things.
Fear can make people act irrationally.
It’s important to acknowledge the power that fear can have over us. Sometimes we know it is fear because we can identify the panicky feeling for what it is. Other times the fear driving us might be more subtle.
In either case, making decisions driven by fear is frequently a mistake. I won’t say always because sometimes the fear of a consequence can be a legitimate deterrent to an unwise choice. But when it comes to making decisions for our homes, fear probably isn’t a great motivator.
So as you work through the various steps suggestions I make here, keep in mind that you don’t want to make irrational decisions driven by fear. We’re out to do just the opposite.
We’re hear to look realistically at what our homes need, what is going on in the world around us, and how to make the best decisions in light of that. Unless you experience one of those overwhelming intuitive gut-checks that is telling you to do something or you clearly sense the Holy Spirit is telling you to do something that seems out of the ordinary, focus on creating a cohesive and practical plan you can execute day by day.
