There are so many choices that bombard us on a daily basis that we can become overwhelmed, causing frustrations to mount. Many times, the choices we make will affect not only ourselves, but those closest to us. The opinion of others places unnecessary stress on individual situations. To be or not to be is a matter of opinion.
How can we get past the judgement of others and make the right decisions for our families? One way is to take everything to God in prayer. The only One we should ever be concerned about impressing is Jesus. He knows our tomorrows and He can lead us in the direction that is best suited for us and those around us. Many times others may place doubts in our minds about the decisions made. This causes the build up of undue stress.
God has given us a road map to life. The Bible has everything we need to equip us concerning the day-to-day decisions that come our way. There are times when we seek help from friends that we may trust, but the choice is ultimately ours. The consequences of every choice falls on the one who makes the decision, so why should not the choice be only left to the individual?
