I watched a lady try to figure which carafe to use to lighten her coffee. She had four to chose from. I assume they were labeled but it didn’t look like the labels were helping her very much. Since I have learned to drink my coffee black I don’t need to worry about that moment of indecision.
I don’t need to decide which dessert to indulge in. The answer is simple, “No thank you.” I am not tempted to steal something from my neighbor’s lawn. I don’t need to decide whether I am going to cheat on my wife. Many of the decisions that some people must make have been decided by other decisions. The big one was my commitment to follow Jesus. An Old Testament passage explains it.
(Joshua 24:15 KJV) And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.When you serve the Lord you automatically rule out a lot of confusion. Sure there are areas of gray. There are vast areas that depend purely on my personal preference. That is called the spice of life. The poisons are off limits.
