One of the best gifts from God to man is the ability to choose. This is one of the features that separate man from other creatures. God bestowed on us the power to choose from several courses of actions. This gift however comes with great and dire consequences and implications. For every choice we make, there is always an implication or a resultant effect or consequence.
This is why it is important to weigh our options carefully, prayerfully and wisely before deciding on a line of action. Some choices have eternal consequences, some have lifetime consequences, some have short term consequences and some have almost immediate consequences. As a rule of thumb, the heavier the impact, the more careful we should be, in choosing. For instance, a choice of career or marital partner can affect a man’s life either positively or negatively. You don’t take such decisions lightly, yet a lot of people especially in the western world take this lightly. Little wonder divorce rate is on the rise.
Our nation and continents today are at the points they are because of certain choices we have made in the past. You are where you are today because of choices you made yesteryear. If you are not happy about where you are, today is an opportunity to again choose an option that can take you where you desire. Like they say, again, the Choice is yours, but the consequences may not be yours alone!
Make a wise choice today. Ask God to direct you. Deuteronomy 11:26-28.
God bless us all.
Good morning Nigeria.
