You can do good or bad All by yourself

Hi everyone, it feels so good to be back. I witnessed a big fight between a mother and her daughter. From the daughter’s statements, I gathered that she blamed her mother for how her life turned out. On my way home, I analysed that issue critically in my head. At last, I was convinced that we choose to do good or bad all by ourselves.

One thing is for sure, you may not have the power to turn everything from black to white, but you certainly have the power of choice. God told us, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live”. Note that God gave us options to choose from, then He advised us. It is our own choice to accept God’s advice or reject it.

It all depends on you to make a great life. Quit blaming people for the outcome of your decisions. People will advise you and persuade you, but that’s just how far they can go. Your decision to accept or reject is what matters. In the bible, the devil advised Eve to eat the apple, and she decided to eat. But when the devil advised Jesus to turn stone into bread and eat, He decided otherwise.

Sometimes, we harbour certain ideas, but being less confident to execute them, we succumb to the slightest pressure, holding whoever convinces us responsible for our decisions. Know this, whether you’re advised to do good or bad, you will face the consequences of your decisions. So maintain calmness and apply wisdom before you make that decision.

Well, I will like you to share your own views in comments below.

  1. I totally agree with you. Though someone may advise us on a situation, we have the power to make our own decisions. I think the problem is that people are more comfortable blaming other people for their misfortune or mishap when in actually sense they decided, they had a choice and they made the choice that they felt it was best for them.

  2. Most times indecision caused by lack of self confidience and people not ready to take responsibility makes them look for advise so as to push blame on someone if things does no work out as planed or priase themselves for seeking the advise when the result is positive. I am not saying that seeking advice is bad but take responsiblity of the decision you made after seeking the advise.
    Know that you are bound to make mistake in your decision and all mistakes can be corrected as long as you are still breathing.

  3. Though your choices may be limited.. you will always have the choice to follow God. And in following Him.. He will guide you, and you will be provided for.
