The Daily Decisions Which Shape Our Future


Our choices matter. Every decision we make daily, over time, makes us the person we are.  It shapes the way we think, the way we act, what we find appealing, the sort of people we are drawn to, the goals we pursue, how we feel about ourselves, the way we see others, our relationships, the freedom or bondage we experience, self esteem, and so much else!

"Sow a thought, reap an act.
Sow an act, reap a habit.
Sow a habit, reap a character.
Sow a character, reap a destiny."

by Elizabeth George
"Little choices determine habit;
Habit carves and molds character
Which makes the big decisions."

"Your choices define you, and that is why it is so important to make good ones! So…

…Choose God’s ways. He will lead you into making right decisions.
…Choose your words carefully. They reveal your inner character.
…Choose to work diligently. You will profit and gain skills, and God will be honored.
…Choose your friends carefully. They are a reflection of you.
…Choose moral character and devotion to God. This is success in God’s eyes."

"Each day is important in and of itself:

- What you are today is what you are becoming
- You are today what you have been becoming
- Every day is a little life, and our whole life is but a day repeated"

Saint Augustine paraphrased Psalm 90: 12, "Number every day as your last day."
