Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
It’s important to know God’s will. How can we know what God’s will is? By reading his word and getting to know him intimately. When we pray for things to happen or aim our life’s path in a certain direction, we want to know if it’s within the scope of what God has planned for us. Get to know God through his word and pattern your life after the characteristics he’s laid forth in it.
