In the video below, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains the four rules for discernment. Think of the choice before you and then prayerfully consider
- Is this a good door? Often the answer is yes. Sometimes you have several good options before you. But if you know it will be unhealthy for you or against God’s law, then you should not choose it.
- Is this an open door? Is this even possible? For example, you should not try to get in the NBA if you have no basketball skills.
- Is this a wise door? Is this something which plays to my gifts and strengths and talents? Will this choice lead me closer to Jesus or not?
- Is this a door that I want? Unless you are sure that God is calling you there, if you don’t desire it then you don’t have to choose it.
Take responsibility and make your decision based on the answer to those questions.
