  • MAKING GOOD (WISE) DECISIONS:

  • God decisions versus bad ones – vvs. 1-3

    • Bad, foolish, or ungodly decisions will stay with you longer than the good, wise, Godly decisions that you make in life.

    • Foolish decisions make Godly people look ungodly! – v. 1

      • Solomon says, a few dead flies can give an entire bottle of expensive perfume a bad smell.

      • Such is the power of foolish actions or decisions.

  • Its obvious, but we still need to know! – v. 2

  • A wise thinking or deciding person tend to DO THE RIGHT THING

  • A follow the crowd, needing to be validated, bad choices type of person tend to NOT do the right thing.

  • How do people get this way?

  • Unfortunately, those of us who are supposed to be teachers presume and assume that everyone knows to make the right decisions without being told what they are or the consequences.

  • Don’t make drastic decisions, to make a point that will not do you any good in the long run! – v. 4

    • Do not be too quick to quit or leave, sometimes that is what Satan wanted you to do in the first place!

    • I did not say that there will come times when you must and or should leave a situation or circumstance, but be sure that you are pro-acting with calmness instead of reacting with anger or disappointment.
