Author Lloyd Celeste gives a great introduction that shares some of his personal struggles indicating why he can write a book entitled Wise Decisions: How To Choose Between Two Great Things and Have Them Both at the Same Time. He gives the reader both wonderful advice, insight, inspiration and personal examples to look at alongside their own life and situations. He begins chapter one with the scripture verse found in Matthew 6:33: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything will be given unto you.” What a refreshing start to a new book to know that a person’s start should be with God first.
Lloyd Celeste shares his personal struggles concerning his family debt, his call to the mission field, as well as work at a university. He warns the reader to never give up on one’s values and principles, even when the opportunity looks inviting. He also pushes the reader to no longer procrastinate but to rather move forward into what they have been called to achieve. He also reminds the reader they must believe in themselves and be willing to take charge and to do what really makes them tick.
A statement that jumped out at me was: “Success is all about good decision making.” In another location within the book he states: “If you want success in life, be determined.” Yet another powerful thought was: “Many people are stagnant in their lives because they do not do what they wanted to do.” The book highlights the point that God’s ways are higher than man’s ways and we must get into alignment with Him and His purpose. Then a final quote that greatly summarizes the book is: “God will lead you in the way you want to go, provided that it falls in line with what His plans are for you.”
