Spiritual Sundays: Door Number 1 or Door Number 2?

Do you remember the old Lets Make a Deal game show? You had to pick a door at random and hope there was a fabulous new car behind it or a dream vacation package and not something ridiculous like a cow in sunglasses.
Well in so many ways life is just like Let's Make A Deal. Life is full of many choices...too many. We try our hardest to pick the right doors in order to find the perverbial 'prize' on the other side.
Are we to blindly just point and choose doors and hope for the best in life?

Thankfully we have a loving Heavenly Father who
#1 gives us the great blessing of agency-the capacity to make our own choices
#2 resources to help us make those tricky decisions

If we follow the commandments and pray about our choices asking for personal revelation and the direction of the Holy Ghost we don't have to pick at random. He does not force our hand or reveal the prizes-he merely offers the freedom to choose and the assurance of peace if we choose Him.

How can you go wrong with guaranteed prize on the other side of that door?

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord
Joshua 24:15
