"Teach me good judgment and knowledge:
for I have believed thy commandments.
Before I was afflicted I went astray:
but now have I kept thy word.
Thou art good, and doest good:
teach me thy statutes."
Proverbs 119:66-68
 
Decision Making
 
I think that life would be so much easier if
we had perfect judgment along the way.
Solomon had a reputation for the wise decisions he made.
It is specifically wisdom he seeks when he became king.
 
The fact is, that we too, have to make daily decisions.
Many times we make choices almost blindly,
without any real assurance or even a hint
of what the outcome will be.
 
We all want to act decisively, because no one appreciates
a person who can't make up their mind.
If a decision is ours to make, we should do so,
with concern for the well-being of others
as well as ourselves.
 
I think the most important virtue in decision making
is humility ~ the humble recognition that we do
at times make poor decisions that may be wrong.
No one is exempt, though some may be endowed with
a better sense of judgment than others.
 
Yet, above all, we should know in our hearts
that if we have erred in our judgments,
but tried to do what is right and in keeping with God's will,
we can be sure that for Christ's sake
our mistaken judgments are forgiven.
That assurance and that acceptance is most important of all.
 
God's judgments are perfect.
May the Holy Spirit guide us in all our daily decisions.
"And this I pray,
that your love may abound
yet more and more in knowledge and
in all judgment;
That ye may approve things that are excellent;
that ye may be sincere and without offense
till the day of Christ;
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness,
which are by Jesus Christ,
unto the glory and praise of God."
Philippians 1:9-11
