You even make tiny decisions like what kind of make up you buy, what kind of toilet paper you prefer, what kind of gas to put in your car, and what to make for supper.
Sometimes the choices are much, much bigger like who to marry, where to buy a house, what career to choose.
I'm about to make a controversial statement, but I stand by it.
You ARE the sum of your decisions.
For some folks, life is "happening" to them, like a cosmic accident. They wander around aimlessly, never knowing how they misread so many signs along the way. They blow to and fro with the wind, claiming, "But I didn't know that was going to happen to me." We all knew that was going to happen to you; you just weren't paying attention to your decisions.
What you choose to do, or choose not to do, will tell others down to your roots who you are and what you believe. If you are a Christian, or claim the name of Christ, I challenge you (just as I challenge myself) to be careful that you are making choices that honor the Lord God, because God is not amused by idle talk. And we will know you by your fruit.
