Read: Philippians 1:1-11

“Approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense.”~ Philippians 1:10

I’ve received a lot of good advice in my life. Near the top of the list is this wise observation from a friend: “Life is not made by the dreams that you dream but by the choices that you make.”

The Apostle Paul gave similar advice in Philippians 1:10, when he said to “approve the things that are excellent”. In any given situation, we have a whole continuum of choices, ranging from really rotten choices, to the mediocrity of average choices, to choices that are good, and then to those that are excellent. God wants to move us across the continuum, past our natural impulses, all the way to excellent choices.
