Choosing good over evil is an easy call. I don't have to agonize over whether
to remain faithful to my wife. God's word makes that one clear. What do
you do when you're faced with a choice between two goo things, and the
choice is yours?
A student has to decide between two schools. One that is near home or
another one, that has a better program for her major, but is in another
state. She has always valued the time she's spends with her folks, but
she has her career to think of. What does she do?
A mother wants her child in Christian School, but to pay for it, she
will have to work outside the home. She thinks her child will benefit from
the Christian education, but also thinks it is valuable for her to be a
stay-at-home mom. What does she do?
A pastor wants to make a visit, but his sermon requires a little extra
work that week. He doesn't want to neglect his flock, so he visits. But
on the other hand, he doesn't want to neglect his flock so he tries to
have a well prepared sermon each week. What does he do?
A family has to decide whether to follow their loved one's advanced
directives and turn off the life support system. What do they do?
A son wants to forgive his father, but also wants to remain loyal to
his mother who has left her abusive husband. What does he do?
When life isn't cut and dry and our decisions are between two right
things, what do we do? That's easy. We grow.
We grow when we struggle with decisions between right and right. They
force us to look outward, and with humility depend upon our friends and
spiritual counselors for advise. They also force us to look inward to seek
the direction of the Holy Spirit and to find God's peace. The more difficult
the choice, the greater potential we have for growth.
