Making wise choices

In a political season we hear quite a mix of messages. It's easy to get either swept up in emotion or lost in confusion. When it comes to making significant decisions, or routine ones, the provocative headlines and sound bites, together with a wide range of opinions, make listening more of a challenge.

Intuition plays an important role in the decisions we make. The intuitive cues we get may be our sole reason for making certain choices. But should we trust intuition? How can we be sure that what we're responding to is right? Sometimes what is right doesn't look that way in the light of human logic.

But human logic, based on the unreliable evidence of the physical senses, can't always be depended on to give us an accurate assessment of things. What we need instead is to exercise spiritual sense, our natural capacity as the offspring of God, to discern and understand all that truly comes from God, Truth. Spiritual sense is entirely trustworthy.
