All choices have consequences: “I appreciate the insight of Rick Warren: “Many of our troubles occur because we base our choices on unreliable authorities; culture ("everyone is doing it"), tradition ("we've always done it"), reason ("it seems logical"), or emotion ("it just felt right".)” The highest character choices are based on truth and faithfulness to your commitments. You may just get thrown to the lions. You can’t buy a meaningful and satisfying life at the dollar store. It takes commitment, faithfulness and consistency no matter the results. Is Jesus Lord of your life? Are you fully committed to your family? Filter all your choices through your commitments ~ what is the right thing to do.
