Making Choices on Sensitive Issues


All of us make hundreds of choices every day. Most choices have no right or wrong attached to them. But we also face decisions that carry a little more weight. How can we make such decisions correctly? Here’s some guidelines for being certain we have chosen well.

  1. Does it help my witness for Christ?
  2. Am I motivated by a desire to help others know Christ?
  3. Does it help me do my best?
  4. Is it against a specific command in Scripture and would thus cause me to sin?
  5. Is it the best and most beneficial course of action?
  6. Am I thinking only of myself, or do I truly care about the other person?
  7. Am I acting lovingly or selfishly?
  8. Does it glorify God?
  9. Will it cause anyone else to sin?
