Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!      

Proverbs 14:25–35

A truthful witness saves lives,
    but one who breathes out lies is deceitful.
26  In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence,
    and his children will have a refuge.
27  The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,
    that one may turn away from the snares of death.
28  In a multitude of people is the glory of a king,
    but without people a prince is ruined.
29  Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,
    but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
30  A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh,
    but envy makes the bones rot.
31  Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker,
    but he who is generous to the needy honors him.
32  The wicked is overthrown through his evildoing,
    but the righteous finds refuge in his death.
33  Wisdom rests in the heart of a man of understanding,
    but it makes itself known even in the midst of fools. 3 
34  Righteousness exalts a nation,
    but sin is a reproach to any people.
35  A servant who deals wisely has the king's favor,
    but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully.

Today’s Truth

There is power in every decision, so choose wisely. Proverbs is rich in wisdom and knowledge for daily living. At the end of the day, it’s up to us to choose obedience and fruitfulness or deceit and destruction. When following Christ, the blessed choice is always the best choice.

Discussion Questions
  1. What truth has God made you a witness to in your own life? In what ways are you a witness for truth to others?
  2. Do you invite God into your decisions?
  3. Going forward, what kind of witness for Christ will you choose to be?
