Life’s Decisions

The Bible has a lot to say about decisions. The great men of the Bible were great because of the choices they made. There was Joshua. He called on Israel to “Choose you this day whom ye will serve.” Then added emphatically, “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) There was also Moses. He chose “rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.” (Hebrews 11:25)

There are many decisions we must make in life. We must choose a mate. This very important decision can determine the whole course of our lives. We must choose an occupation. Remember to make it an honorable one. We must choose our friends. Be very careful here. Remember: “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.” (1 Corinthians 15:33)

We must never forget that decisions determine destiny. This is true not only of the big decisions but of the little ones also. Our eternal destiny will be determined by the total of all our decisions.
