Choices I

The choices we make every minute of every day can contribute to making someone’s life a little bit better or worse even without intending to. (Chikamso Efobi, British nature writer)

Making choices is one of the few things we can control. And Efobi reminds us how important our choices might be because they can affect so many others. Parents influence their children, teachers their students, friends their compatriots. Making decisions, therefore, must involve our thinking, not only about what is good for us, but what is best for others we might influence.

Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold (Proverbs 22:1).
