The Power of Choice

A Blue Letter Life Wisdom 

The Power of Choice 

My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. Proverbs 1:10 ESV

The first and most important lesson in life's wisdom is to recognize the power of choice.  Every person has it.  Every person is held accountable to it.  It is a gift from God.  You will often execute the gift of choice.  Choose wisely because consequences follow your choices.

Power Quotes:

"You are free to choose. You are not free not to choose. No choice is a choice. You are free to choose but you are not free to choose the consequences of that choice." -Adrian Rogers 


"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Ronald Reagan learned that it’s better to make a decision than to let others make it for you. When he was a kid, his aunt took him to a shoe store and had the shoemaker to make him some custom-made shoes. He was asked if he wanted square toed or round toed shoes. He couldn’t make up his mind and when he went to pick them up one was round toed and one was square toed. It was a lesson the shoemaker was teaching him about making his own decisions.
