'RIGHT CHOICES IN OUR LIFE'
'Give your servant a discerning heart... to distinguish between right and wrong.'

Choices - they're the determining factor in how our life turns out. When Solomon came to the throne as a young man, he prayed for wisdom to make the right choices in his life. We can find several examples and instances in the lives of great many a people, how their right or wrong choices contributed to the changes in their lives. So, let us keep in mind that in the end, 'the choice you make, makes you.' Some of us make life harder by making bad choices; others move through life more easily because they make good choices. The truth is, you don't always get what you want but you always live with the consequences of your choices.

The choices reveal who we really are. Theologian HP Liddon observed: 'What we do on some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are; and what we are will be the result of previous years of selfdiscipline.'

The higher we rise, the more difficult our choices become. The very same wise king Solomon, who chose to begin with wisdom, sadly in his later life made the wrong choice and chose women who turned his heart away from God ( ). Look at the life of Samson, how sad his life became because of his bad choices in his life

Our choices change us for good or evil. Once we make a choice, we become a servant of that choice. It impacts our life, and often on the lives of others. CS Lewis said: 'Every time you make a choice you are turning the central point of you, the part… that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before'. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or a hellish creature.'

So, we must learn to make our choices prayerfully and wisely. Hard times don't make us, but they reveal us!
