                                              The Best Choice         

The Bible tells about a young man who was actually given such a choice by God Himself. The young man's name was Solomon. He had just become king of Israel. One day God appeared to Solomon in a dream and said to him, "Ask what I shall give you." Solomon could have asked for riches, or for power, or for pleasure, but he asked God to give him wisdom. (1 Kings 3:7, 9).Solomon's choice of wisdom pleased God very much. God said that Solomon would be the wisest man who ever lived. God not only gave him wisdom, but He also gave him wealth, honor and power such as no other man ever had. We see from this what a high value God places on wisdom (Proverbs 4:7).

 

                                   Point #1 We must think correctly

Wisdom is thinking right thoughts and making right choices. Wisdom comes from seeing things as God sees them. Seeing things as God sees them enables us to understand the root causes of our problems and to know what to do about them. It enables us to discover God's principles for a happy and successful life. If we are to see things as God sees them and make the right choices, then we must think correctly (Proverbs 23:7).Our thoughts are very important. What we think determines what we do and what we feel. If we accept wrong thoughts, it will result in wrong actions and wrong feelings.

 

When Satan came to deceive Adam and Eve, he began by telling Eve a lie. God had said that, if they ate of the tree of knowledge, they would surely die. Eve accepted Satan's lie. She was deceived into thinking that by eating the forbidden fruit, they would be as gods. This wrong thought led to a wrong action—she took the fruit and ate it. This was an act of disobedience. Adam also disobeyed God. These wrong actions led to feelings of fear and shame. When God came down that evening to walk and talk with Adam and Eve, they were afraid and they tried to hide from God (Genesis 3:4-5).


                           Point #2 Where do wrong thoughts come from?

Wrong thoughts come from Satan and from his ungodly world system. The Bible tells us that Satan is the real ruler of this world system. He is called "the god of this world." Satan's world-system is based on pride, lust, greed, and selfishness. The world-system is directly opposed to God and His wisdom. The Bible says, "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." (1 John 2:16).

 

Don't accept "the Wisdom of the World". Since we live in the world, we are constantly being exposed to the thoughts, ideas, opinions, and values of the world. These are wrong thoughts because they come from Satan's world-system. Accepting "the wisdom of the world" leads to wrong thoughts, wrong actions and wrong feelings. For example: The world says,"Live for today. You only go through life once, so grab all the pleasure you can." God says that there is another life after this life—an eternal life. What we do in this life affects our eternal destiny. The world says, "If it feels good, do it." God says, "If you live after the flesh, you will die." (Romans 8:13). The world says, "Have a good time while you can. You can settle down later." God says, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap."


                                    Point #3 God wants us to be wise (Ephesians 5:15)

Recognize God's presence. We dare not live our lives as though God did not exist (Proverbs 9:10). What is "the fear of the Lord"? It is the continual awareness that we live in God's presence at all times. We remember who God is and we honor Him as God. We do not want to displease or grieve Him. As you learn to live in the continual awareness of God's presence, you will be less and less concerned about what others may think of you or what they may say. And you will be more and more concerned to please the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:9).

Look to God for wisdom. Our God is all-wise. All true wisdom comes from Him. God delights to give His wisdom to those who come to Him and ask for it (James 1:5).One of our greatest dangers as Christians is to trust in our own wisdom instead of asking God for His wisdom (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Renew your mind. We are constantly being exposed to the thoughts, ideas, and values of the world. Before we were saved, we accepted the ways of the world. Consequently our minds were filled with many wrong thoughts and ideas. We get rid of them by renewing our mind (Romans 12:2).This is the way to a happy and successful life.

Make right choices. Being wise is not just knowing what God wants us to do. It is choosing it and doing it. There is great reward in choosing God's way (John 13:17).

The primary thing you will need to think about when dealing with the improvement of your salon will be making sure that you have the right kind of salon software installed. The types of salon products you sell will also determine that whether your company can succeed or not.
