“Let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
– James 1:6-8
We are all familiar with the person in our newsfeeds who is constantly in and out of different relationships, and never seems to make their mind up about any important decision in life. This isn’t healthy, and it’s not the life God wants for those who trust in Him. We are to look over situations and utilize the brain He has given us as well as His gift of discernment to understand what path to follow. Being unstable and unsteady as a lifestyle isn’t the mark of a Christian.
“I hate the double-minded,
but I love Your law.”
– Psalm 119:113
No one else appreciates someone’s wishy-washy behavior either. As followers of Christ and examples to others, we are to stay sober-minded, using our critical thinking skills.
“Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
– 1 Peter 1:13
