Here's a thought:
Each time you face a choice today, pause for a few seconds to consider how your decision can serve God's purposes.
Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as you ever can. -- Attributed to Methodist Founder John Wesley
