Craig Groeschel captured my attention when he wrote that good decisions are easy to make while the best decisions are hard, risky and costly. That’s what keeps us from making the best decisions—we know they will cost us something valuable up front. Michael Pietrzak says the Latin root of the word “decision” means “to cut off.” So the best decisions come by eliminating any other course of action. It is sink or swim time. But what makes them the best decisions is the reward that comes later. Following Jesus is a costly, best decision with eternal reward!
