Life can be exciting when we invite Jesus Christ to guide our lives!

Having a personal relationship with Jesus enables us to tap into His profound wisdom, which can shape our decisions for powerful outcomes.

Just as a bridge connects two points, our faith builds strong bridges in life, connecting us to purpose, resilience, and God’s guidance.

As we learn Jesus’s teachings and trust Him more, He will impart timeless wisdom that will show us the right direction every time.

The number one principle of Jesus’ wisdom is love

love for oneself and others.

By embracing the principle of love, decisions become a means to build bridges with others rather than walls, fostering connections and understanding.

Another foundational principle is genuine forgiveness

which will free us to live a powerful life.

Jesus encourages us to genuinely forgive, as unforgiveness will hold us personally captive when allowed to remain in our hearts.

Forgiveness isn’t just about letting someone off the hook (so to speak). When we trust God to handle the situation and let it go, forgiveness will improve our lives spiritually, emotionally, physically, and relationally.

The virtue of forgiveness becomes a bridge that will mend relationships and promote healing in decision-making.

Jesus’ wisdom is to walk in humility and meekness

highlighted in The Sermon on the Mount.

Applying these qualities allows us to approach challenges with grace, promoting unity and understanding rather than discord.

Jesus also teaches us the importance of prayer

which should become our compass in decision-making.

Seeking God’s guidance through prayer ensures that our choices align with His purposes, contributing to constructing bridges that can withstand the tests of time.

Finally, deliberate and committed faith

necessary to receive everything from God, starting with a personal relationship with Him.

Our faith in Jesus provides us salvation, promise, and hope, creating bridges that will carry us through adversity with inspiring resilience and perseverance in the face of life’s storms.

As we navigate the complexities of life, let’s construct bridges that connect us to a purposeful and meaningful existence through our faith in Jesus Christ as the cornerstone of our decisions ❤️

Matthew 7:24-25
These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock; rain poured down, the river flooded, and a tornado hit, but nothing moved that house; it was fixed to the rock.
