I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life, and death, blessing or cursing; therefore choose life that both you and your descendants may live . . . (Deut 30:19)
In this passage of Scripture, God reminds us that He has given us the power to make our own choices. We can choose life or death; we can choose blessing or cursing; we can choose to obey God or not.
As Christians, many of life’s seemingly inconsequential choices are simply opportunities to live as disciples and followers of Jesus Christ—or not . . . !
Think about the importance of such things. It’s kind of mind-blowing when we view our lives from this perspective. Each and every day, we have so many choices to make.
We must choose:
- Whom we will serve (Josh 24:15)
- What type of words we want to speak (Job 15:5; Pro 8:8; 21:23; Jas 3:6-9)
- Not to be an oppressor (Prov 3:31)
- Our friends wisely (Prov 12:26)
- The good and refuse evil (Isa 7:15)
- To bless God (Ps 33:1;146:2; 147:1; Heb 13:15)
We each have one life to live. We each have millions of choices to make throughout the course of our lives.
Take time to consider which kingdom you are serving with each and every choice that you make. God bless you.
