Weighing the Pros and Cons

Ever have a situation where you have to make a really tough decision? Common advice is to pull out a piece of paper and write out all of the pros and cons of each decision and then make your decision. What if it's not about you? What if it is about those who God has brought into your 'sphere of influence'. God's Word is pretty clear. We are to put aside our preferences in order to serve our neighbors. Treat others as we would want to be treated. Love your neighbor as your self. When one is limited as we are (being human) there are times when decisions are to choose between the rock or the hard place. Verse for today: Phillipians 4:4-7, ESV Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
