This is PROFOUND. Seth Godin has a way of cutting to the core of the matter and only writing what is “meat” that will change your life if you allow it. It was not written from a Christian perspective, but it so totally applies to the Christian life that I wanted to share it.
Habits are a choice
Giving is a choice
Reactions are a choice
Ideas are a choice
Connections are a choice
Reputation is a choice
The work is a choice
Words are a choice
Leading is a choice
No one can be responsible for where or how we each begin. No one has the freedom to do anything or everything, and all choices bring consequences.
What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.

You make many choices each day, even though you may not realize it.
You have developed daily habits based on information you believed to be true, either about yourself or information you obtained from books, studies, teachers, leaders, etc.
We all have a belief system of some sort, but some of our belief systems are built on lies that someone else has told us. We took their lies and have made it our belief system, and it affects us daily in everything we do.
It’s not easy to change a wrong belief system that has been ingrained in you for years, but it is totally possible with God’s help.
He will send the right people into your life, bring encouragement when you need it, and bring you to the place where you can “receive His very best” when He gives it. Many times we ask for help, but don’t receive the help He gives; therefore, we are never changed and continue our struggles day after day.
God desires to change your life, BUT YOU must allow it. You MUST be open to receive what He desires to do. HIS ways are different from YOUR ways, so He may choose to act in a way that you never imagined. Just because you haven’t thought of it doesn’t mean God’s Way isn’t the best for your life. In my experience, God’s Way has always been much better than anything I ever thought of. I have never wanted to go back and do things my own way after I saw how God has handled things.
You have already made some choices today. What you choose to do next, though, how to spend your resources or attention or effort, this is what defines you.
Will you be open to RECEIVE God’s Very Best for your life?
