What do you choose?

Making choices can be difficult. Sometimes there are too many choices, or too few; or there is not enough time, or too much; or there arises a dreaded fear that we'll make the wrong choice.

A primary fallacy about making a choice is that we must do it alone. Or with mere advice from others. The fact is that God is the only Mind; man, united with God as His idea, reflects Him. So we are required, really, to abandon the self-oriented approach of "I must do this-or-that" and to replace it with the realization and unswerving faith that Mind directs everything. We needn't fret that "perhaps God doesn't really understand the importance of this decision," or, "even if He does, I might not be receptive enough to His direction!" The Bible says, "Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments." Ps. 119:66. And the promise follows in Proverbs, "I [wisdom]lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures." Prov. 8:20, 21.
