Have You Considered Life’s 3 Cs?

Life’s 3 Cs:

Challenges, Choices, Consequences




I receive these devotional thoughts in my email every morning from Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries. I thought I would share this one for today’s inspiration.

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


My Reflections

I think this devotional is excellent and a good reminder to keep in mind on a daily basis. Especially in this day and age, it seems too many people have forgotten there are consequences for their actions and choices. But it truly is a matter of reaping what you sow, what  goes around comes around, karma, or whatever you choose to call it. My Dad used to call them “lessons of life” – and they DO happen!


So what are YOUR thoughts?


Do you find these 3 Cs of life to be relevant for you?


What are other important choices and challenges you face in life that have long-term consequences?

  1. I think these 3 c’s can be both good and bad. For example, I chose to go into debt to go to grad school instead of attending a school that would have funded me. The happy consequence of that was that I met my husband and found my favorite city in the world!

  2. This is such a nice post and I agree that it is so important to make a right choice in our lives so that right results and right consequences will also comes.

  3. I too agree. Life is all about perspectives. Sometimes challenges will come in the form of an opportunity and if we run from it we may miss the chance to make something out of it!
