God gives us freedom to make our own choices, but those choices have consequences.
We may not have friends or a family life but we are free to seek our own selfish pursuits. If we so desire, we are free to pursue wealth and may end up with lots of money, but we won’t have no joy in spend it. We are free to choose in improving ourselves or hurt ourselves, build a family life or destroy it, pursue righteousness or sin, but whatever we decide, we must live with the aftermath.
It is better to have wisdom and understanding than gold and silver. With God’s help we can make the right choices today and tomorrow to guide us in the right direction.
Proverbs 16:16 NLT
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold,
and good judgment than silver!
