Today’s Decisions

‘To err is human, to forgive divine,’ wrote Alexander Pope. To err continuously and bank on unending divine forgiveness is a wisdom problem. Good and evil choices are not new to us; they abound everywhere. Some choices are progressive while others are retrogressive. We have them in our lives, we see them in the lives of those around us, we read about them from books, and God also gave us a reliable record called the Bible, from which we learn about the people of old. These documented references show us life lessons we should learn from. ‘Now these things happened to them as an example and warning [to us]; they were written for our instruction [to admonish and equip us], upon whom the ends of the ages have come’ (1 Corinthians 10:11 AMP).


God made us free moral agents, giving us the power of choice between good and evil. If He had wanted us to do what He says automatically, He would have made us as robots or puppets with no ability to think or act for ourselves. The world would have been a grand ‘show’ of puppets and the puppet master. However, He wanted us to be in His image; hence, He gave us part of His essence—the power of choice.


While we have the power to make the choices we want, unfortunately, we do not have total control of the consequences. The consequences of your decisions or indecisions usually have a cascading effect. Besides the direct impact on you, the consequences could affect your children, your spouse, your extended family, your community, and ultimately your relationship with God. In the same vein, some of the ills we suffer today could have been caused by wrong decisions taken by our parents. Generally, the decisions of yesterday impact today, and today’s decisions will impact tomorrow—this cannot be left to chance.
