Thought for the Day - Choices
As I listen to the news, it seems that everyone wants more freedom of choice. One of the least understood processes of life is the “Power of Choice”. The issue is not having the freedom to choose but rather making the right choices.
We make hundreds of choices every day and many we don’t even think about, we just do it.
Thankfully, most choices we make are benign with little influence on our lives. However, all too often this same automatic decision process is carried over to more serious choices.
Created with free will, we have the God-given right to make choices in life, just as Adam and Eve had a choice in the Garden of Eden.
However, many are blinded by the fact that they have to live with the inevitable, life-altering consequences of bad choices. As a result, they are confronted with a cascading impact that creates obstacles that could have been avoided.
Therefore, it is important that we know God’s word, seek Godly counsel, pray and give a great deal of thought to the choices we make. There is ONE major choice that each of us will be confronted with, the choice of accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior or denying Him. There are huge consequences to this choice. Acceptance brings eternal life, the joy of an intimate relationship with Jesus and so much more. Denial brings eternal death and living in a world without the blessings of God.
What Will You Do With Jesus?
Deut 30:19-20 AMP
19… I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.
20 And may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days.
