Daily Nugget

      Wednesday, June 26th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

President Ronald Reagan learned the need for decision-making early in his life. A kindly aunt had taken him to a cobbler to have a pair of shoes custom-made for him. The shoemaker asked, “Do you want a round toe or a square toe?” Young Ronald hemmed and hawed, so the cobbler said, “Come back in a day or two and tell me what you want.” A few days later the cobbler saw young Reagan on the street and asked what he had decided about the shoes. “I haven’t made up my mind,” Reagan answered. “Very well,” said the cobbler. “Your shoes will be ready tomorrow.” When Reagan got the shoes, one had a round toe and the other a square toe. Says Reagan, “Looking at those shoes every day taught me a lesson. If you don’t make your own decisions, somebody else makes them for you” (A. P. Standerman, Let Me Illustrate ).

Ironically, not to make a decision is to make a decision…. In 1 Kings 18: 21, we read these words from the prophet Elijah: “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

God, help us to choose You today and each day. Amen.
Bro. Bill
God loves you!
