But is the little hinge that the big door (the Bible story) turns on.

“You always do what you want to do,” said W. Clements Stone. “…You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself.”
The decisions you make can produce much greater outcomes, whether positive or negative, which can have lasting effects. Roger D. Mardis explores the concept of the small word but as a turning point in decisions. In his new book “Big Doors Swing on Small Hinges,” Mardis examines 31 Biblical personalities and stories that have but turning points.
“But is the little hinge that the big door (the Bible story) turns on,” Mardis said. “We make our decisions and then our decisions make us.”
The 31 examinations speak of life issues and lessons that can be applied to everyday decisions in hopes of preventing negative consequences of our actions. Mardis has created a tool to help guide choices that have personal, professional and national implications.
“Like a hammer steadily driving in a nail blow by blow, each chapter confirms that great experiences with long-lasting, even eternal results turn on the small ‘hinges’ of seemingly inconsequential actions or words,” said Steve Gaines, writer of the foreword.
