I once bought a book on Decision Making. After going through the first chapter. I stopped reading it when I realised past the first chapter was some new-age-nirvana-thinking-psychology kind of book. Why was I even attracted to such a book in the first place? Because decisions matter! If you’re like me, growing past your twenties and starting out in life… You start to realise that every decision you make has an effect on your life, or, your decisions affect those around you. Every decision may cost you time, money, or even a piece of yourself…
Hence, I was so excited last weekend in HOGC when Pastor Tan Seow How taught on Faith-based Decision Making.
This part of the sermon got to me:
– It is important that we make decisions out of Faith and not Fear
– There are also people who don’t dare to make decisions
– They avoid and abstain from them
– Not making a decision is already making a decision
– Instead of living by design, they live by default or drifting
I feel sometimes I’m the one who tries to hide away from decision making. We’re not afraid to give our input. But when it comes to taking the plunge, who dares to do it? It’s great that all the youth hear this sermon too – I’m sure I have many friends who would agree they would have made some better decisions in their lives (maybe not taking History, Economics, and Literature together during JC?). Hahahahah. Heart of God Church is really the best place for youth to grow up in.
I was so moved at the end of the service… To trust God more, and to learn to make decisions out of faith!
