Make the Right choices for the Right reasons

September 19, 2011


I am not a gambler. My wife says that not only am I not a gambler; I’m not even much of a risk taker. She should know. I have, however, on occasion run across a poker tournament on television and stopped to watch. It is both puzzling and intriguing to observe some of the decisions that are made. Some are made purely out of desperation by people who believe they have no other choice. Other decisions are made totally out of conceit by people who believe they are invincible or they just can’t do anything wrong. There are on some occasions decisions made out of stupidity. Even in poker there are few rules. The successes in this walk we call life will be dictated by the choices we make also.


David didn’t want to accept that Saul wanted to kill him. Jonathon said let me talk to him and I will inform you of his intentions. In conversation with Saul, Jonathon learned of Saul’s desire to kill David and showed David the sign he told him of. That sign was to inform David to run. To stay meant putting himself at risk. David had been anointed by Samuel to be the next king and now God was protecting David until his appointed time. He could’ve out of conceit or arrogance made the wrong decision. He could’ve out of desperation chosen to act. Thank God that the steps of a righteous man are ordered of Him. Nothing will ever take the place of sound counsel and the wisdom to follow it. Sometimes we need to choose when and where to fight the battle.


Make the right choices.
