“Decision Determines Destiny”

Key Verse

“And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:” Ruth 1:16

Text — Ruth 1:11-18


It is often said “Decision determines destiny.” The decision you take today will determine your destiny in the future. This is the reason why you need to make the right decision and you cannot do it on your own. You need the help of God, godly parents, teachers and friends to guide you.

From our text we see the decision of two women and how their decisions determined their destinies. Orpah kissed her mother-in-law and returned to her idol. From this point we never heard about her again. Ruth on the other hand, clave to Naomi and refused to leave her. She followed her to the land of Israel and that wise decision made her the great, great-grandmother of our Lord Jesus Christ. One of the wisest decisions to make today is to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. The result of that decision is eternal life, but if you decide to remain in sin, you will end up in hell fire. Be wise today and you will not regret it.
