Choosing Wisely can be made easier when we look to God…
Is not the whole land before you? Let’s part company. If you go to the left, I’ll go to the right; if you go to the right, I’ll go to the left.” 10Lot looked around and saw that the whole plain of the Jordan toward Zoar was well watered, like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt. (This was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) 11So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan and set out toward the east. The two men parted company:12Abram lived in the land of Canaan, while Lot lived among the cities of the plain and pitched his tents near Sodom. 13Now the people of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the Lord.
Every day we face decisions. There are those Godly principles that we can look to that can help us getting through choosing wisely.
Our passages today continue with the example of Lot. We see in these passages that continue from last week where Lot did not consider seeking God when choosing. He did not realize that his decision would have dire consequences for all of his family later on.
When you know you are doing the right thing, decisions become a little easier. There are those things that we can follow as “rules”- First, we can seek Godly wisdom. Second, ask ourselves what is guiding our decisions. Third, keep our desires in check. Fourth, not be impetuous. Fifth, the decision should always glorify God.
When you make the right decisions you can bank on the fact that God is always with you.
Choosing wisely always has to do with character and substance.
