‘Wisdom Always Knows It Has A Choice’ (Ecclesiastes 8 ) by Kemi Ayorinde


Reading: Ecclesiastes 8, Genesis 39

Title: Wisdom Always Knows It Has A Choice

TEXT: “for there is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble.” Ecclesiastes 8:6 (NLT)


When it seems like there is no choice or way out, remember that God always makes a way.

Joseph chose to notice Potiphar’s wife’s lustful advances and he chose to stay away (Gen 39:10). He also chose to flee from her grips when she thought he would have no choice because he was a servant, and she his Mistress. Joseph made a choice. Even when he was imprisoned wrongly, he still made the choice to remain good.

Let us be vigilant to perceive any perverse spirit around us; seduction, greed, deception. When we identify them, we must flee from them. And, when our good nature is not appreciated but punished, do not relent. Our reward is from God, not man.

Pray: Father, when before me is life and death, help me to choose life that I may live. Help me not to place fear of human condemnation above the consequences of unrighteousness. Open my eyes to always see your way before me. Amen.
