Any of you who have had an in-depth discussion with me recently know I have been on a kick about agency. You ask me, “what should I do?” and, like a very wise person I know, I answer, “Do what you want.” Well, at least that’s my answer to most people who already have an idea of what they ought to do. For people who are completely unsure or who I think need guidance I am an endless source of unwanted advice. That said, I still try to end the discussion with “Do what you want.”
I take great comfort in the fact we must each answer for our own choices. It makes sense. If my friends came to me for advice and I had to answer to God for their choices, I would not have any friends, nor would I choose to share my opinions. But we will each answer for our own choices. Therefore we have two burdens on us: (1) choose to do what is best for us in all situations and (2) suggest people do the same–this is an action we must answer for also.
So when it comes to you to choose, do what you want. But want to do your best and what God wants you to do.
