Making Wise Choices
by: Rick Olmstead
At the end of the day our life consists of the decisions we make or don’t make in our life....every decision we make not only affects you but it affects people around you.
Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.
Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
- Luke 18:18-30
(18) Once a religious leader asked Jesus this question: “Good Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?” (19) “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked him. “Only God is truly good. (20) But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. Honor your father and mother.’" (21) The man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.” (22) When Jesus heard his answer, he said, “There is still one thing you haven’t done. Sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” (23) But when the man heard this he became very sad, for he was very rich. (24) When Jesus saw this, he said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God! (25) In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” (26) Those who heard this said, “Then who in the world can be saved?” (27) He replied, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.” (28) Peter said, “We’ve left our homes to follow you.” (29) “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, (30) will be repaid many times over in this life, and will have eternal life in the world to come. (NLT)
- Luke 19:1-10
(1) Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. (2)There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. (3) He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. (4) So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way. (5) When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.” (6) Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. (7) But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled. (8) Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!” (9) Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true son of Abraham. (10) For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost. (NLT)
Jesus - The Wise Choice!
Eternity rests on that decision.
