These Two Questions Will Help You Make The Right Decision Everytime

Everyday we are confronted with decisions we need to make: on the job, in our marriage, in business transactions, among siblings, dealing with friends, we are daily faced with choices that can sometimes be difficult to decide on.

Ultimately,  the quality of our lives depends entirely on the quality of decision we make from day to day. More importantly, where we spend eternity depends entirely on the decisions we make in this life. So clearly, it makes sense to want to improve our success rate at making the right decisions.

While there may be many approaches and guides to making the right decision, I think asking these two questions is perhaps one of the few fail safe ones.

1. Am I prioritising the kingdom?

Matthew 6:33 NLT
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

2. Will this meet the standard of God’s holiness?

1 Peter 1:15 NLT
But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.

I believe the more consistent we get in making the answers to these two questions the main determinant of how we decide, the more we will make the best possible decisions.

  1. My prayer is that the Lord will help us get our priorities right. There is so much that the world is dangling in front of us as must haves – priorities, important, such that we begin to pursue shadows leaving the real deal behind. The truth is most of what we desire today, that we want to make decisions on, are basically just things to make us feel good and measure up with the world standard.
