Decisions, decisions, and more decisions. They come at us rapid fire all day long. By the end of your day you will have made hundreds, if not thousands, of little decisions which add up to how you’ve spend your time that day.
To make the best decisions we have to decide how we are going to decide in the moment of decision. Author Alan Lakein says we can default, drift, dream, drown or decide.
Many people default to what they’ve always done without thinking. Some drift, floating along with whatever happens to happen. Others dream. Instead of focusing on the matter at hand, they convince themselves there is something more important to do and they procrastinate their day away. Many drown, never having a plan in place to help them make quick decisions. They are always behind and snowed under.
God’s way is none of the above. Godly decision making is based on Biblical principles of right and wrong, and fulfilling God’s call for your life. It’s the way to redeem the time.
