Life is all about the choices we make and the decision we make today affect our future. Some decisions are regrettable, while some can haunt you for a lifetime. Therefore, decisions are serious tools that can make or mar your life. The above Bible portion tells the story of a man, Jephthah who made a hasty decision without first, considering the consequences or other alternatives.
Some decisions can destroy and annihilate an entire generation, some can as well mortgage our future and destinies.
Before taking decisions, first consider the following:
1. Identify what type of decision you are about to take. Jephthah was hasty in taking decision without considering other alternatives.
2. Consider the goal you tend to achieve.
3. First identify possible alternatives.

Some of life’s decisions causes pains and tears. If we sample options first while considering results, some consequences can be averted.
Many ancestral burdens and curses come to bare because of hastiness in taking decisions.
