On being selective

Sometimes the toughest choice we have to make is between what we want to do and what we need to do. Though these may sometimes coincide, often a decision has to be made. Should I snuggle down for that last hour's sleep, or should I invest the hour in prayer and study of the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly? Should I watch that terrific show on television, or should I go to the church meeting?

On the surface these decisions may not seem crucial. Yet when we take into account the number of times we are called on to choose, we can see how making the right choice in each case can have a direct bearing on our overall sense of well-being.
