Making a decision

13 Quotes About Making Life Choices | SUCCESS

John Maxwell once said: "Life is a matter of choices - and every choice you make makes you."

What do you do when you are invited to 2 parties on the same day? Tough call to decide which is going to be the best to attend? In the case of Solomon the Hosts are key in his decision-making process. When he understands what the Host has in store for him, that is what defines his choice.

Wisdom invites him a feast, but so does 'Folly.' They both make their parties sound amazing, but in the end, Solomon knows that one of them is going to be very bad for him - it is actually lead him to experience hell on earth, while Wisdom's celebration will bring him LIFE. 

The foolish woman is loud;
    she is ignorant and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
    on a seat at the high places of the town,
15 calling to those who pass by,
    who are going straight on their way,
16 “You who are simple, turn in here!”
    And to those without sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet,
    and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But they do not know that the dead are there,
    that her guests are in the depths of Sheol." - Proverbs 9:13-18

Making tough choices can be a stressful exercise, but thankfully God gives us lots of direction.

"But until a person can say deeply and honestly, "I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday," that person cannot say, "I choose otherwise.” - Stephen R. Covey
