I was very much encouraged this morning by Proverbs 9:6.

“Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live; learn to use good judgment.”

What this verse tells me is that I can always improve my decision-making ability.

Like you, I make a lot of decisions each day and I want to become the best decision-maker possible.

What Solomon tells me in the verse is that I can learn to make better decisions.

Many of us suffer in some ways because we sometimes don’t make the best decisions when at the intersections of life choices.

We look in the rear view mirror and realize that we should have taken another path.

We can’t escape the regret but we can learn to be wiser when we approach the next intersection.

And that’s why reading the Bible daily is such a good idea. It is a book of decisions.

Many recorded there were good. Some were not.

We can learn from all of them.

Particularly those made by Jesus Christ.

He never made a bad decision.

That should prompt us to examine closely His decisions and learn from them.

We’ll be known for our good judgment as we do so.

While we’re in this season of learning called life, let’s also learn from mature believers who are known for making good decisions.

Let’s begin to live the life God intends for us.

As always, I love you
