Learn To Make Better Decisions

The Word for Today
with Bob Gass

Learn To Make Better Decisions
A prudent man gives thought to his steps.
Proverbs 14:15 NIV
If you're still making the same mistakes at 50 that you were at 20, you need
to ask God for wisdom. "The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the
ears of the wise seek it out" (Proverbs 18:15 NIV). What you are in the
present is determined by the decisions you made in the past. If you want to
change your future, learn to make better decisions. Be wise; let these
principles guide you:

(1) Never make permanent decisions based on temporary circumstances. If you
do, you'll regret it. (2) Don't let your emotions blind you reasoning. Pray,
weigh things carefully and base your decisions on mature judgment. (3)
Surround yourself with sharp people and draw on their gifts, without being
intimidated by their expertise. (4) Take the time to consider all options.
What looks good to you today may not look so good tomorrow. (5) You can't
fight successfully on every front, so choose your battles carefully. Simply
stated: some things are not worth fighting for. (6) Take time to get all the
facts; conjecture leads to crisis. (7) Consider the consequences of each
action. Ask yourself, "Am I ready to handle this right now?" (8) Make sure
your expectations don't exceed your potential and your resources. Be
realistic. If you can't count, don't apply for a job in the finance office.
If you can't sing, don't try to make an album. Focus on what God gifted you
to do. That's where you'll succeed. (9) Time is your most limited and
valuable resource. Don't waste it. (10) Allow yourself a 10% risk of being
wrong, a 50% likelihood of betrayal, and a 100% commitment to trust God, go
forward and survive it all.
