“Lean not on your own understanding,” we read in Proverbs 3:5

As we move through life, we may find ourselves needing help with decisions. We often seek advice from experts, books and those around us. But how do we know who to trust?

The first half of Proverbs 3:5 extols us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.”

As we prayerfully turn to God with our questions, we know we can depend on God to guide us.
