Daily Verse: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Prov. 14:12
Proceed with caution.
No one makes decisions thinking they will lead to disaster. The alcoholic wouldn’t take the first sip if he knew it would lead to his demise. Nor would I have swiped my first credit card charge if I knew it would lead to a mountain of debt that took me years to pay off.
Lord knows we all make choices we think will turn out one way, and they lead us to places we never wanted to go. Having trusted counselors in our lives help us make life-giving decisions instead of leading us on the path to destruction.
In my life, my husband and close friends help me make good choices. I’ve learned from past mistakes; it doesn’t go well when I forge ahead without consulting anyone about my decision. But having people who will look at the situation objectively and tell me the truth about the direction my decisions will take me helps me make better choices.
Seek wise counsel when making important decisions. Trust those who love you to tell you the truth and help guide you on the path of righteousness.
Lord, forgive us for our poor choices. Help us make better decisions as we surround ourselves with wise people who will help us see the path ahead. Steer us from destructive choices. Help us live our lives to the fullest with You. IJNIP. Amen
