Wisdom in making choices

Story of the day:  Wisdom in making choices

     “A child stood gazing at a freshly opened box of chocolate candies–lips pressed together, concentrating fully upon the decision at hand.  The rule was “Only one, no more than one, but any one you want.”  Should it be the biggest one, or would the small round one be the favorite peppermint cream?  Then again, the long one might last longer.  Which to choose?  And how to decide?

     Perhaps a child’s decisions seem trivial to us adults.  Oh, we recognize that they are important to the child, but we have a broader perspective.  That is the question in making choices, isn’t it?  To have an eternal perspective on life and its decisions is to know how to choose.” Michael Green

Quote of the day:  Richard Foster

“Indeed, wisdom and discernment are among the natural results of a prayer-filled life.”

Bible verse of the day:  Proverbs 2:6

“For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I receive Your Words today and treasure the things within You.  I pray to listen to Your Wisdom and apply it with a heart full of understanding.  I pray to walk in the way of goodness, and keep to the path that You have set before me.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
