While unpacking my books that have been in storage for 33 months, I came across a neat little book by John Mason entitled “Ask.” It’s subtitled “Life’s Most Important Answers Are Found in Asking the Right Questions.”
The book offers 244 important questions you can ask yourself. Today’s list is in the form of questions for your consideration. Not 244. But I’ve picked 12 from the section “Looking Inward.”
12 Important Questions You Can Ask….Yourself
#1 Do you count your blessings, or do you think your blessings don’t count?
#2 Are you known by the promises you don’t keep?
#3 Have you noticed that 99% of the things you worry about don’t ever happen?
#4 Do you make decisions from a position of confidence or fear?
#5 How do you act when the pressure is on?
#6 Is it a long way from your words to your deeds?
#7 Do you judge each day not by the harvest, but by the seeds you plant?
#8 Are you making a cemetery out of your life by burying your talents and gifts?
#9 What is your mission in life? Are you moving toward that life mission or away from it?
#10 What’s the best use of your time right now?
#11 Do you know where you are going?
#12 Would the boy (or girl) you were be proud of the man (or woman) you are?
Hmm, this sounds a bit like an application of 2Corinthians 13:5. “Examine yourselves.”
