Tough Decisions

Today, more than ever, we are faced with challenges that severely alter the directions of our lives. There are a lot of temptations in this world. If we don't make the right decisions, then we are stuck with the consequences of our actions. For many of our mistakes, we can get over them and move on, but there are some which we must live with for the rest of our lives. Our decisions affect everything in our lives: relationships, jobs, finances, faith, health, and more. Don't make your decisions in haste. Choose wisely. Ask yourself a few questions:
  • Does it conflict with my beliefs?
    If so, most likely it is not the right thing to do.
  • Would I be ashamed to tell my family, friends, boss, children, or church about this?
    If so, chances are it is not the right decision.
  • Is what I'm doing right now getting me closer to where I want to be in the future?
    If not, then you may be wasting your time on pointless things that are getting you nowhere.
These three questions cover a lot of ground in helping make decisions. Hopefully they will help narrow down the tough decisions and eliminate the bad decisions. Good luck, and feel free to share your experiences in the comments below.
