Choosing as a process is a basic tool of our everyday life. We choose a mate, choose clothes, choose a destination for our holiday, choose a job, and we can continue to record endless lists of topics for which we have the exclusive responsibility of choice.
The basic parameter of my choices is always the possibilities offered, i.e. how many options I have, in order to choose the one that suits my need. If, as we say, my choice is one-way because I have no choice, then my responsibility is limited to denying or accepting the opportunity offered. But in life this rarely happens.
As a rule we have many choices and what we choose is what we want, what we judge to be of interest to us and therefore our best choice. So if my choices are crucial for my day-to-day decisions, it is obvious that in the case of greater choices, especially those concerning my future, they are also of great importance and determine the developments in my life.
That is why the Apostle Paul recommends to those who seek the living relationship with the living god not to choose the mediocre choices but to choose the best and the greatest, the most essential and not the humble, the productive choices and not the ones who will hide the talent in a place for safekeeping.
