This morning, I felt led to meditate on the word 选 or choose. I looked at the traditional 繁体 form of the word instead of the simplified 简体 form of the word.
You can see in the picture attached how the elements of the word come together.
So the word CHOOSE =
We have choices to make every day. Before you take a step, stop. Say a prayer to the LORD (represented by the Altar).

The outcome of prayer?

Wow, thanks, Geri, on sharing your insights of the Chinese word for choose. Yes, it is unwise to make a hasty decision. Pray to the Lord for counsel. Proverbs 3:5-6.
