Two fleas were at the bottom of a hill. One said to the other, “Shall we walk or take the dog?”
Life is full of choices. Big and little choices. By the end of your day today you will have made hundreds of choices. The solid tie or the striped one, chocolate or vanilla, lunch with Bob or Ted.
With all those decisions to make, its important to have some way to determine God’s will in every decision, no matter how small. We do this by principle centered living.
Most people make decisions based on the urgency of the moment, the expectations of others, doing what we are comfortable with, or just whatever happens without really even thinking about it. Principle centered decision making on the other hand looks for God’s will in the little things as well as the big things and tries to find a principle from Scripture that will guide us down the path of greater effectiveness.
Applying broad scriptural principles such as character development, humility, and a servant’s heart has far reaching impact to guide us and help us redeem the time.
