The Choices We Make

Sabbath School Summary
The Choices We Make
Lesson 2
Memory Text: Joshua 24:15

SATURDAY: Choice is a powerful word. It is a “deciding power” which work in men “unto obedience to God or to disobedience”. Life is a matter of choices; from the time we wake up till we go to bed. Some choices are routine such that we don’t even think about them—what we eat or wear. All choices have consequences wether simple or difficult. Yet, there is redemption and healing for our wrong choices.

SUNDAY: God has given us a “kingly power” which determines our eternal destinies. To accept the view that God has predetermined our fates as to wether one will be saved or not is to accept a wrong theology. Howbeit, “God has chosen for all of us to be saved”. Our power of free will and choice is what saves us or make us lost (Eph. 1:1-4; Titus 1:1, 2; 2 Tim. 1:8, 9; Matt. 25:41, read Matt. 22:35-37).

MONDAY: The choices we make can either make us progress in life or retrogress in life. Also, they affects not only us, but sometimes our families. When we place our will on the side of God’s will, we link ourselves with divine agencies that guides us to make the right/good decisions in life (1 Thess. 5:17; James 1:5, Isa. 1:19; Matt. 7:24, 25, Ps. 119:105; 2 Tim. 3:16; Prov. 3:5, 6; Isa. 58:11, Prov. 15:22; 24:6).

TUESDAY: In life, we influence and are influenced. Hence, choosing a companion is key. The influence friends exert on one another is for good or for evil. First, we ought to be friendly in order to acquire friends (Prov. 18:24). Amidst our flaws, we should cherish one another (Prov. 12:26; 17:17; 22:24, 25, PM, p. 95).Saul’s choices disqualified Jonathan from being a king, but Jonathan was a good friend to David (1 Sam. 18:1).

WEDNESDAY: We should make haste slowly in choosing a life partner. As beautiful as the path of marriage is, there are thousands of people who have walked on it and have come out disappointed. Unlike Adam whose partner was made ready for him, we have many people to choose from. Marriage can send one to heaven or to hell. Hence, God has given us a guide (Ps. 37:27; 119:97; 1 Cor. 15:33; James 1:23-25; Matt. 7:12).

THURSDAY: In choosing a course, we should not choose blindly. No matter our situation we have the power to choose what we’ll do with our lives; a job or career. We ought to do all to God’s glory. With all God have him, Solomon found “satisfaction in the pleasures of sense” (Eccles. 2:1-11). In his old age, he saw the “emptiness of a life that seeks in earthly things” and returned to the Lord (1 Tim. 6:10).

FRIDAY: Abuse of free will led to the fall of man (Gen 3). “If unfallen beings,… could misuse free will how much more do beings like us, steeped in sin?”. We can only avoid wrong decisions in life when we align ourselves with God. Free will led Cain to kill Abel and Joseph’s brothers to ruin their father’s life (Gen. 37:33-35). The decisions of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram also affected their families (Num. 16:1-32; Dan. 6:23, 24; Gen. 18:19).

Discussion Questions

📌 What are some of the free choices you made today? What do they tell you about yourself and your relationship with God and with others? Of the choices you made, which ones, if any, do you wish you had made differently?

📌 What Bible characters made wrong choices, and what can we learn from their mistakes? How did their wrong choices negatively impact their families?

📌 No question: we all have regrets about wrong choices we have made. Why, in times of those regrets, is the gospel such good news? What promises from the Bible have you claimed in times of distress and guilt over wrong choices?

📌 If some people were to come to you talking about marriage, what advice would you give them, and why? What principles can you point to from the Word of God to help them work through this important decision?

For April 6-12. Happy Sabbath.

    Отказы либо не объясняли, либо говорили, что плохая кредитная история и ничего не поделаешь.
    В тот момент я о кредитных брокерах даже не слышала.
    Вот недавно коллега на работе сказал, что есть такие организации, которые помогают получить кредит.

  33. На номер супруги установили прослушку и я выяснил , что она меня обманывает с моим лучшим другом. Я бы этого и не понял, однако я начал замечать, что мой наилучший друг, тот, что довольно часто бывает у нас в гостях начинает себя вести по-другому, когда рядом моя супруга. Можно увидеть какое-то неудобство и можно сказать, какой-то страх, а супруга только каждый раз прятала взгляд. Я продолжительное время за всем наблюдал, хотел отыскать иные причины подобного поведения. Только, я все больше размышлял о том, что могло случится и такое. Я оказался прав, я попросил взломщика установить прослушку. Я ожидал пару дней и после из разговора я все сообразил. На сегодняшний день я не имею жены и друга, но я не опечален, я даже рад, что меня больше не окружают лживые люди. А я хочу сказать спасибо хакеру, тот, который смог открыть мне глаза на это все.
