Mom’s wisdom:

Perhaps even more important than trying to speculate as to what Jesus would do in a given situation, is to endeavor to determine what Jesus would have you do.

    love it – reminds me of a recent Relief Society training I attended. The first speaker spent about 30 minutes laying out a case (not that anyone was doubting 😉 for how much Heavenly Father loves the women of the church. Then the second speaker’s message was very simple: knowing what you know and knowing how much you are loved and how precious you are, doesn’t that make you just want to fall on your knees every morning and ask, before you begin your day, “Where would You have me go and what would You have me do?

    I love this idea, too. Too much of my life was wasted seeking perfection because, hey, Jesus is perfect, and I should be too. With such pressure, I got pretty physically ill and even emotionally unwell (depressed, stressed). Of course I failed.

    But when I ask the question, “what would Jesus have me do,” the answer can be as simple as “Take a nap, you’re exhausted. It’s okay.” I feel more heavenly love from above, and more love for myself.

    I think that is one goal that Jesus has for us.

    What Erin said. Half the time I have a decision to make I have NO idea what Jesus would do. I don’t read about him being a parent or managing a household. And how many women are in the scriptures as good examples?

    Finding a solution or a course of action Jesus would approve of is a good reminder. Although we are free to make are decisions, it is up to us to make the most responsible one.
