Learning to make decisions with reasonable speed is at least one trait of people who make a mark in life. Joshua, the successor to Moses on occasion forced his followers into situations that demanded a decision on the spot. Elijah the great prophet also demanded meaningful decision on Mt. Carmel.

Jack Benny played on the folly of indecision with his story of a man attempting to rob him in an alley. The man demanded of Jack, "Your life or your money." Jack just stood there. The robber said, "Well?" Jack responded, "I'm thinking about it." The last stanza of Robert Frost's poem The Road Not Taken states:

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Ió
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

The truth is that life honors the person who will trust the Lord and see the opportunities along the path not taken by others. In the face of invasion by the pagan army of Sennacherib the people of Israel were encouraged by a word from the Lord.

Isaiah 33:6 "And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure."

Several pillars of truth for spiritual and practical growth are in Isaiahs' words. We will do well to choose wisdom and that will make all the difference.
