If you don’t make your own decisions, someone else will

Ronald Reagan, while still a young man, had an aunt who took him to a cobbler for a pair of new shoes. The cobbler asked if he wanted square toes or round toes. Reagan couldn’t decide, so the cobbler told him time to think about it. Two days later he saw Reagan on the street and asked him again what kind of toes he wanted. Reagan still couldn’t decide, so the shoemaker said, ‘Well, come by in a couple of days and they’ll be ready.’
When the future president did so, he found one square-toed and one round-toed shoe! ‘This will teach you to never let people make decisions for you,’ the cobbler said. ‘I learned right then and there,’ Reagan said later, ‘if you don’t make your own decisions, someone else will.’
The Bible says the same: ‘a double-minded man, is unstable in all his ways, and will not receive anything from the Lord.’
