Making decisions based on our present circumstance most often means we are planning to remain there. When we allow our future to dictate our present actions, we are prepare for where we want to go rather than settling for what our eyes can see currently. In order to do this we have to exercise a certain amount of faith in ourselves and belief that our best life is ahead of us.
If we think about it, all of our lives our parents prepare us for the possibilities ahead. We learn to be independent, are educated, are taught to drive, and encouraged to go to college all to ensure that we are equipped for our future. So why is it that as adults we begin making decisions based on our present circumstance and what we can physically see, only to feel unfulfilled with a life of complacency? We quit dreaming of where we want to go and begin relying only on our actual sight. In that very moment, we lose hope and weaken our faith through lack of exercising it. Our faith in the future that God has made possible is placed in the hands of our past, our parents, friends and family, expectations, others opinions and beliefs of our capabilities, a sense of loyalty to a plethora of things in our current life, and it is replaced with complacency and laziness toward continued progression in life. Decisions should be made because we want to grow ourselves, not because we know ourselves!
