Don’t follow your heart when it tries to lead you into bad choices. Choose to make your life a wonder, not a blunder. When you let your feelings make your choices, you’re in for a reckless ride.

Choose thoughts, words, and actions that will make your life better, not botch it up. Disconcerting choices morph into disconcerting habits; disconcerting habits morph into a disconcerted life.

Everyday offers you many choices. You make a few from wisdom, some from responsibility, many from feelings, but most from habit. As long as you’re conscious, you always have a choice. At the very least, you can choose your thoughts.

Every choice involves consequences. We’re all free to make bad choices, but we’re not free from the consequences of those choices. If you’re unhappy with your consequences, make better choices. If you want better results in your life, choose better habits, make better decisions, and think better thoughts. Decisions made without regard for consequences produce many unpleasant surprises.

Past choices that have produced pain cannot be unmade, but they can be apologized for, renounced, and turned away from. Your attitude is the result of how you have chosen to respond to your circumstances.

No matter how good it feels, a sin is never a win. Don’t just go with your whims; follow the world’s best handbook for making wise choices — the Bible. Open up the Bible with an open mind and it will open up your heart.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
