Sometimes whatever decision we make is the right one. As I grow in Christ, I often find myself having to make a decision not between right and wrong, but between good and wise. For example, say I have an evening free and it comes down to spending it either with a group of friends from the church or with my family. Lets say I've had a long week and need the fellowship, however, because I've had a long week I also haven't spent quality time with my family. So, while it would be a good thing to spend the evening hanging out with church friends, the wise thing would be to spend it with my family.

How about money. I could surprise my wife with something nice (good) or I could put that money toward paying down our debt (wise).

How about food. I could save some money by getting a burger, fries and drink for lunch at Wendy's for just over $3.00 (good) or I could bring a salad or buy a salad and eat something nutritious (wise).

This concept applies to so many decisions we make in life. So instead of asking yourself if you are doing the "right" thing, why not ask yourself instead if you are doing the "wise" thing.
