What do dominos have to do with life-changing decisions? More than you might think. However, choosing the first domino is crucial. If you base every decision on the Word of God, then one good decision will lead to the next; it's a domino effect. But bear in mind that the process also works in reverse. If a person refuses to make Bible-based decisions, it is a negative version of the domino effect - a chain reaction that leads from bad to worse. God has blessed you with the freedom of choice. If you are really writing your life story one day and one decision at a time, then you have the power to determine how your story ends. But everything hinges on tipping the first domino. Make sure it falls in the right direction. Tim Lewis, a graduate of Oklahoma Christian University, has a bachelor's degree in English education and a master's degree in ministry. He served as the preacher/youth minister for the Mt. Vernon Church of Christ in Mt. Vernon, Mo., for eight years before moving to Oklahoma City to begin his work with the North MacArthur congregation in 2004.
