Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

All week we have been reading Moses' charge to the children of Israel to obey the commands of the Lord, to follow His instructions and to love Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

Every one of these acts requires them to make a conscience decision; they could do what's right and be blessed or do what's wrong and be cursed.

As we continue to read these next few weeks we will find out a little bit of both happens.

And although we are reading about decisions made thousands of years ago, consequences for good or bad choices still exists today.

One wrong decision made by anyone can not only effect them but a host of other people as well.

Lives can be hurt, changed and even lost because of one seemingly small decision like...

Getting behind a wheel after drinking one to many drinks.  

Or flirting with someone who's not your spouse.  

Or working late, again, instead of spending time with your kids. 

So, how can you know if your decision is a good one or not?  Lay this question along side your dilemma...  Is this decision one that is overriding my senses and is it an option that at some level I know I should not do? If so, then you probably should not do it. 

Today my prayer for all of us is that we would stop, think and pray before we make even the smallest move in our life because our decisions will always stretch far beyond our reach.  And once made and acted upon, that action can never be changed no matter how hard we pray. 

That my friend... is scary.

Praying we all make good decisions in life,
