From Jim’s Heart—Little Choices, Big Decisions

There are a myriad of thoughts penned on the importance of choices. You’ve probably heard this one:

Little choices determine habit;
Habit carves and molds character,
Which makes the big decisions.

What does this tell you? That even the little things count! If ever you’re tempted to cut corners and do things the easy way, or do your work halfheartedly because others aren’t watching, eventually your little choices are going to become habits that affect the bigger decisions you make in life. This is especially true with regard to sin. Taking it lightly can lead to poor decision-making down the road. So consider every choice carefully, no matter how small, for it will affect the bigger decisions you make.

God, help me to pay attention to my activities today and to consider the importance of the small choices I will make. May each one be a reflection of my one big choice—to follow You with all my heart. Amen.

“Seek Ye First”

If you’re like us, you want your children to have some of the things you didn’t have when you were growing up. And you certainly don’t want them to make the same mistakes you did. Put another way, you want them to have a better life, to live a better life.

Do you worry about the social and financial status of your children? Many parents worry about their children going to the “best” schools, living in the “best” neighborhood, meeting the “right” people for the connections needed to get ahead. Dreaming about bettering your children’s lives is not a bad thing. You definitely should want to make sure your children are properly educated and develop self-discipline and self-motivation. And you should want your children to succeed and contribute positively to society and their future families. But you should never desire these things at the expense of godly principles.

Focus your attention on living for God and trusting in His care. Then train your children in righteousness. Show them the way—and the why—of making choices that please God. In the words of Jesus,

Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (Matthew 6:33 NIV).

Lord, remind us daily that when we put You first, You will take care of everything else—including our children.
