Thought to Ponder: What’s the Right Thing!
…A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7
Somebody said, ‘Yard by yard life is hard, inch by inch life’s a cinch!’ For our life to go right, we must learn to think right. So learn to ask: 1) ‘What are my options in this situation?’ But do it with the right attitude. Seeking the Holy Spirit to guide, write down every option that’s offered. No answers are wrong and no idea will be judged as silly; all suggestions are accepted and valued. You’re priming your creative pump, encouraging yourself to think. Ask ‘What benefits come from each option?’ Your goal is to discover and embrace the truth and that comes through patience, not pressure. Determine which benefits seem most important. Ask, ‘What negative consequences come from each option?’ Be brutally honest. That’s okay; it’s just part of learning God’s cause-and-effect law of sowing and reaping. Indeed, many adult regrets could have been avoided by following this law. Teach yourself to question, ‘Am I willing to accept the consequences? How will this they change my life?’ ‘What personal values are involved in this decision?’ Values-based decisions call us to the high road rather than the path of least resistance. Align with godly values as primers, such as truthfulness, trustworthiness, loyalty, responsibility, compassion, friendship, self-denial, courage, honor, faith, etc. Break it down don’t miss your opportunity to sow a great crop for your future.
