QUOTE OF THE DAY: “CHOICE IS THE CATALYST THAT BRINGS GOOD OR BAD HAPPENINGS INTO OUR REALITY”
Memory Verse: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11.
Truly, there are problems, heartaches and failures in the world. Often, they are brought into existence when we think wrongly and make wrong choices. Problems are not sent to us from God as a result of bad behaviour. Rather, they are directly related to the effects that bad behaviour brings about in our lives. This is a direct consequence of our power to choose. Personally, trouble results when an individual makes a choice that is based on wrong thinking. On a societal level, trouble results when groups of individuals in authority make a collective choice based on wrong thinking. ‘I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.
[pullquote]Personally, trouble results when an individual makes a choice that is based on wrong thinking.[/pullquote]Now choose life, so that you and your children may live’ – Deuteronomy 30:19. The greatest power ever given to mankind by God is the power of choice. It therefore follows that any situation you find yourself is a product of your choice. Do not blame anyone else! For instance, a doctor makes more money than the shoemaker, a dentist makes more money than the window washer, and a lawyer makes a better living than the garbage collector – why? Because they chose to prepare themselves for a better living.
Good living, smooth living, beautiful living, all come from choosing good ideas. Your job is therefore to learn to choose good ideas, keep choosing good ideas, and life will be what we choose to make it. Choose to prepare yourself for a better way of life. By improving yourself, you improve the world. Do not create any trouble for yourself. Consult relevant books; people and God before making a choice because every choice you make either makes you better or worse than you were. From today, your life mistakes will be few. Your stay on earth will be blissful. Enjoy your day!
