To start off, deciding is a very large part of maturity. You learn as you grow up the decisions you make lead to things that happen in life.
If you don’t make good decisions you may be thought of as immature. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t make wrong decisions. They may try as hard as they can but will never get to that state of mind where they are all wise.
There are three parts too The Deciding Series the first is about seeing the difference between right and wrong, the second is about stopping and thinking, and the third is living the right decisions.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. -Proverbs 2:6 (NIV)
Seeing the difference between things is easy and hard at times.
The rain and the sunshine, grass and snow, hot and cold, wise and foolish. These are all differences … antonyms. To discover what is wise or foolish is to
use the brain that the God did give you. Is to step back and think.
A few friends have been talking about a movie you’ve been planning to watch at the cinema, they have mentioned a few scenes which you are unsure about. Do you go ahead and watch it? Or do you ask your parents about it? (I tend to go online and go to for parents on IMDB, find the movie and look to see if anything is inappropriate or such)
That night you message your friends and tell them that you won’t be coming tonight. They are confused and inquire as to your reasons. What do you do then? Lie that you had something on, or tell them the truth that you don’t think you should watch movies with such scenes?
These are all decisions and as you may have seen when you make a decision there is one right after it, and another, and another. Every day you go through so many decisions. Should I do what I want or do what my mother wants me to do? (Remember the commandment: “Honor your father and your mother.”)
