reading between the signs

So... my family just put a sign in our yard to sell our house.

No worries - we have no plans to leave town or our church. The deal is that after five years of living where we're at, we're simply finding our floor plan isn't the best for how we're trying to raise our family. Between homeschooling our boys and keeping up with a toddler, we're taking a step of faith to see if some doors open up.

I'm sharing that with you so you can hear what's up straight from me. Sometimes when we hear only a bullet point about a situation we find ourselves wanting to sum up the rest of the story before there is one. It's a principle the Bible teaches about when it says :

"Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you." (Proverbs 2:11)
Take some time today to remember that there's more going on in the lives of people around you than you may realize. Sometimes we pride ourselves on our ability to read a person or situation, but we just may miss out on the full story because we get caught up in the "signs."
