Save us from false choices

Grant us, O God, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would [have] us do, that the spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in your light we may see light, and in your path may not stumble; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

—William Reed Huntingdon (1838-1909),

Either pilot or passenger Somebody said that in…

Either pilot or passenger. Somebody said that in life you’re one or the other. Your choice. Maybe better to say that God is the Pilot of this world, and his people are the flight attendants that serve others and seek to lead them to the Lord. So there’s a third class besides pilot or passenger, and that is the one we choose.

We may put our finger on events…

“We may put our finger on events and decisions of the past that changed our lives for the worse, but we sometimes fail to consider the possibility that God may have wanted that change.” —Kerry Duke

Brother Duke speaks here mainly of changes in history, but can we apply this to personal events and decisions?
