Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Watch Those Choices!
by Charles R. Swindoll

Apply your heart to discipline
and your ears to words of knowledge.
Proverbs 23:12

Living in truth is making the right choices. Here's what I mean. 

In the light of truth, you and I are able to see both truth and lie, both light and darkness—that which is simple, pure, and clear and that which is deceptive. . . .

The secret, of course, is making the right choices every day. So? Watch those choices! Watch your decisions!

No married couple suddenly splits. Nobody becomes a cynic overnight. Nobody makes one leap from the pinnacle of praise to the swamp of carnality. Erosion is a slow and silent process based on secret choices. 

And isn't it remarkable? If you don't stop yourself in the downward process, last week's wrong choice doesn't seem quite so bad this week. In fact, in a month's time it seems like not that bad a choice at all!
