And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.

Micro-decisions are those myriad of little choices we have to make to get through a day. Sometimes we can fall back on routine to reduce the number of choices, but when we are responsible to others, the decisions increase. When we are responsible FOR others such as children or sick family, then those micro-decisions explode exponentially. Any one decision may not matter but together a trend forms, a path is forged, fatigue or stress or resentment bleed out making for poor choices and self-seeking interests. All are made vulnerable by even small decisions. There is, however, a kind spirit that calls us to take a breath, to breathe in God's grace so that we will be turned toward love and wisdom, patience and understanding...even if it is the wisdom of knowing that we don't always know what is best but we want to, we really want to.
