What kind of influence do you have on people today? Are you staying on the path God's ordered for you yet? Sometimes it's too easy to make decisions you think will be right only to discover later how wrong you were. And every man did that which was right in his own eyes from Judges 21:25 speaks to any who've done their own thing, in spite of what God may have guided through the counsel of His Word. Has that ever been you? We're responsible for the actions we take, for the choices we make each day.
In all we experience through simple daily living, God faithfully shows us more about ourselves and where we are in our spiritual walks.
