The Super Bowl Dilemma 
by Rick Boxx
February 19, 2010

Imagine being the CBS executive making the final decision on two controversial Super Bowl advertisement requests; Tim Tebow's ad on celebrating life and an ad for a gay dating service that showed two men making out.

Decisions like these are made according to someone's view of the world, and what motivates them personally. Someone driven by profits would either take both ads or drop one or both if they believed the financial backlash would be greater than the short term profit.

If the decision maker was driven instead by pleasing God, they would decide according to God's standards.

If you have a difficult decision to make at work, remember the psalmist's advice in Psalm 119:104, "Through your precepts I get understanding, therefore I hate every false way."
