…Making good choices?
…”Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.”Is 5:21
…It is easy to live our lives, like water, following the path of least resistance, avoiding whatever causes conflict or makes us uncomfortable. Such lives, most often, are defined, not by character, but by convenience. Jesus could have chosen comfort, but He chose the cross instead because His love for you was greater than His desire to be comfortable. There are times when we need to make an inconvenient choice. As Thoreau said, “The path of least resistance leads to crooked rivers and crooked men”. As you make your choices today, don’t choose what seems best. Choose God’s Will… and you will make a difference!!

…What do you want to do?
…”It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.”Pr 19:2
…Uninformed passion yields suicide bombers, while passion directed by God’s wisdom changes our world for good. When we seek to know God intimately, He will create within us the passion to do that which we were created to do (Ps 37:4). First, ask yourself if you are allowing God to shape you. Are you focussing on your relationship with Jesus as your priority? If you are, then ask yourself what you want to do. What one thing burns in your heart to be done? If your focus has been placed on following Jesus, then a passion has been birthed in your heart to do the one thing that you were created to do. Stop putting it off. Learn about it. Ask God for His wisdom in it. Don’t hurry or you could get off track, but begin living your passion today.
