The journey through life is filled with choices. Literally, we make hundreds of choices every day. Most choices are inconsequential in nature: what clothes to wear, hygiene preparation, what to read or television program to watch.
However, there are choices that are consequential: career, marriage, children, disciplines or where to live.
As amazing as it sounds, there is one choice – a step in the right direction – that determines all other choices, both consequential and inconsequential: the choice of Christianity.
When we make the choice of Christianity, it informs every decision from that point. The type of job chosen will be different for a Christian. The choice of a spouse will be determined by the choice of Christianity. The way children are raised and where we live are both influenced by Christianity.
When leaders provide an example by their choice spiritually, as demonstrated in their physical choices, they are taking a step in the right direction of leadership as God intends.
Now is the best time to start making the kind of choices that will change the direction of our lives and the influence we have with others.
