Happy midweek – and Women with Intention Wednesday! I received this devotional thought in my email this morning and decided to share it as a bridge between the guest blog features I was doing and whatever I decide to do next while I’m limited to one-handed typing.
This is an excerpt from the Daily Devotions by Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries:
“What you decide to eat for lunch and what you decide to wear don’t have long-lasting repercussions in life. But there are other decisions that are very important, like whom you will marry and what career path you take. And the most important choice of all is whether you will follow Jesus Christ.
You could call it the three Cs of life: challenges, choices, and consequences. We face challenges every day. Sometimes those challenges will come in the form of an opportunity that we can take advantage of. At other times they will come in the form of a temptation that hopefully we’ll resist. Then we have the choices we will make. And then we have the consequences of those choices. If we have made the right choices, there will be good consequences. If we have made the wrong choices, there will be bad consequences.
We need to make the right choices in life because it can affect the entire course that our lives take. The choices of life are binding in eternity. You will make choices today that will affect you forever. You make your decisions, and then your decisions make you.”
–Pastor Greg Laurie
So what are YOUR thoughts about these 3 Cs of life?
What are other important choices and challenges you face in life that have long-term consequences?
Remember that you can still read Psalms and Proverbs to accompany each day on my page, Daily Scripture Readings. AND you have an opportunity to put compassion into action–whether through praying, sharing the linked causes, and/or donating. Also, please let me know if you know of or have a legitimate cause that I could add to this page.
