‘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.

Given my extremely tight schedule, I am very picky about how I spend every free time I have including the books I read. The title of the book "TODAY's DECISION" caught my attention and for the price I was quick to try it out. After a few minutes into reading it, I realised it was value packed and it was a steal on my part to buy a great life changing book for a small fee. It had the right balance between biblical and contemporary issues we deal with in our daily life. It presents practical stories I could relate to, with renewed freshness and insights. Most especially, it was straight to the point and free of clutter or waffles. This is a timely masterpiece to help everyone navigate the times we are in. I will highly recommend this to everyone to read and to gift to their family, friends and peers.
How many times do we spend days or weeks struggling with a decision that could alter the course of our lives, family’s life? Decisions of these magnitudes are not easy, and, unfortunately, the majority of us regard outside indicators as our internal rudders, allowing impressions, emotions, or other pressure-packed forces to influence is. This book provides an excellent insight with the right balance to support you on your journey no matter what it is. Well written and a good summer read.
