Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. (Proverbs 8:10,11)

Have you stopped lately to think about the impact of choices? Some are more important than others. But be sure of this: Choices do matter.

A young man was brought by ambulance to the emergency room with severe injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident. While he was going to survive the ordeal, he would never be the same. Sadly, the young man had made the choice not to wear sufficient protective clothing. Fighting the good fight of faith is about making the right choices. It starts with evaluating how you make choices.

Are you making your choices according to your own wisdom, or do you seek the Lord’s wisdom for making decisions? The writer of these verses, King Solomon, tells us that God’s wisdom is superior to anything we can desire. Want to make smart choices? Seek wisdom from God.
