but in the end it leads to death.” Proverbs 14:12.
You may ask the questions why a way that seems right leads to death. Sometimes we think we know the right action to take and move forward. However, later we find out that was a wrong way, and it led to much regret and destruction. It could be true about an important life decision. It could also be true in non-important decisions.
“There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death.”

Will it make me closer to God or away from God?
Will it affect my family relationships positively or negatively?
Do I have full peace in this decision? Alternatively, am I still divided internally without peace?
Am I rushing into a decision?
Should I wait a little bit more time?
If God closes this door, will I be ok?
Am I fully submitted to God for His will and purposes?
If you have not come to the loving God in and through Jesus Christ, come now and get forgiveness and reconciliation with God. God loves you and wants to save and bless you today. Will you come?
