The Power of a Clarifying Question

18 Nov

I have written before on a different blog about the POWER OF A CLARIFYING QUESTION.  The idea is this: sometimes we can find a question that so zeros in on something that the question itself helps you clarify something — a decision, situation, struggle, relationship, or whatever.

A lot of questions aren’t very clarifying.  They tend to actually muddy the waters and don’t help us make decisions, process information, or take steps for personal growth.

Here are a few CLARIFYING QUESTIONS that have been helpful to me lately…

– How are you doing with loving your enemies these days?

– What are you holding onto that you shouldn’t be?

– Where are you resisting Jesus’ work or voice in your life these days?

– How does Jesus feel about me today?

– What am I doing today that has Kingdom impact and value?

– How am I seeking reconciliation in my life?

What are some clarifying questions for you?
