We All Choose

This past week the Lord has nudged me with "choices." It doesn't seem like such an important word just 7 little letters but what an impact on our physical lives as well as our eternal lives one little choice can make. Most of us spend more time contemplating whether to "biggie size" it then we do on the important things. EVERY choice we make has a consequence. "Biggie size" means we get fatter, then have to loose more weight. Just talking to that coworker who understands me can lead to infidelity-divorce-children's destiny's changed.

"Joshua 24:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

Joshua is choosing the one true God. It amazes me that God allows us to choose, since we seem to make so many wrong choices. Have you thought about it though what will you choose: gluttony over self control, lust over your marriage, things over giving.

It's our choice. The end matters.
