Topic – Decision: A Key To Distinction
The right decision is a major pathway to excellence. It takes the right decision to arrive at the right destination.
SCRIPTURE: But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Decision determines destination and life delivers according to demands.
Earlier, we saw that there is a responsibility to take in order to see possibilities in life. To stand out in life like Daniel, there is a road to follow.
Today, we shall look at one pathway to living an excellent life, and that is: Decision (or the right decision).
The right decision is a major pathway to excellence. It takes the right decision to arrive at the right destination. Decision is the foundation for distinction. Nobody can be outstanding without a choice; excellence is never a product of chance. A decision for quality equals a destination of quality. To follow the road of right decision is to end at the place of excellence.
For example, no one graduates as a first class candidate by accident. No one can say, “I don’t know what I did but I got a first class degree”. No! It is not true. To graduate with a first class degree, you would have to make the decision first and then you begin to work at it.
Beloved, you are doing nothing about your destination until you do something about your decision. Excellence is ignited by making the right choices; mediocrity on the other hand is a product of the wrong choices. What you choose in life determines what you have; where there is no demand, there is no delivery; what we demand determines what we realize. Your choices determine your chances in life. You cannot excel without a choice and you cannot experience distinction without your participation.
Decision determines destination and life delivers according to demands.
Remember this: Decision determines destination and life delivers according to demands.
- Make up your mind to make the right choices in life.
- Refuse to sit on the fence undecided.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to make the right choices in life. Help me not to sit in the valley of indecision, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
