The challenge we all face every day is confronting the things in life we can change and making the right decisions about those changes. Life really comes down to making decisions. You are who you are today, what you are today, and where you are today because of the decisions you have made in the past. Nobody understands the importance of being able to make wise decisions more than a king. As one of the greatest kings who ever lived, he clearly understood the value of decision making and made a decision that, in turn, made him the great king that he was. God did something for this king that He will do for us, and if we will follow this king’s example, we can make decisions fit for a king.
There are only two types of decisions we can make. From a human perspective, we could call them either good decisions or bad decisions. From God’s perspective, He would call them wise decisions or foolish decisions. Just as every parent wants to train their children to make wise decisions, God wants His children making wise decisions. God wants us to live otherwise. And in order to do that, we need to come to understand that the wisest decision we can make is to seek God’s wisdom for every decision.
