Make the Right Choice!
“All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up.” 1 Corinthians 10:23
The right call and the right choice now can lead to a peaceful and prosperous life. I read a story of a young man who was in tears when he heard his rich dad died and will him nothing except an option to pick one thing and leave the rest of the inheritance to his slave. He didn’t know how to react but to cry. The lawyer told him that he had to decide within seven days, or else everything will be given to his father’s slave.
While he was trying to decide which choice would be better, the slave begins to celebrate his life with joy. Everyone else was making their own choices. Some people say it will be better to choose money because with money comes power. Others say it is better to choose the company because you can have all your needs to be met with the company.
“For wisdom is a defense, and money is a defense: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom gives life to them that have it.” Ecclesiastes 7:12
However, the young man begins to pray and search for wisdom. He just knew that if he could choose his father’s desire, he would be okay with his life. On the seventh day, the young man and slave were called by the lawyer for their inheritance. The young man was asked to choose that one thing that he preferred from his father’s properties. The young man looks around and chooses the slave who had been given the right to inherit all of his father’s property because He who owned the slave had a right to inherit all of his father’s property.
The same goes for you as well. Have you been given an option to decide between two options? What is your choice? Because every choice you made today will make tomorrow’s future better than it was yesterday. Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore, choose life, that both you and your seed may live.”
1. Oh! Lord, I thank you for allowing me to be alive.
2. In the name of Jesus, please help me to make the right choices to fulfill my destiny.
