"Incision means to cut in, decision means to cut off. When I make a decision, I cut off alternatives and make a choice." MLK Jr.

People. Places. Habits. Foods. Jobs.
The application is wide.
This time of year I like to evaluate what I allowed to cut into me. The incisions can almost be decorative if we allow. Many of them together form patterns and if not careful appear to be beautiful.

In this world, this life there are forces trying to cut into you. Seeking to cut you off from the love, joy, peace, health that is yours. Find the patterns of incision and make a decision.
About your witness and relationship with God.
