TODAY'S DAILY...choose wisely

The Bible has much to say about making choices. From choosing Whom we serve (Joshua 24:15), to choosing how to spend our time (Luke 10:42), to choosing to pursue God's values vs. the worlds values (Proverbs 16:16).


When God created man in His own image, He created us with a free will. He allows us to make choices.


As a parent, I have not always approved of the choices my kids have made but it never stopped me from loving them. This is the picture that I would like for you to get, God doesn't approve of all of the choices His children make but even the bad choices in life never keeps Him from loving us.


"Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold fast to Him. For the Lord is your life." -Deuteronomy 30:19,20


In addition to being given a free will to choose, God also gave to each of us the power of His Holy Spirit. It is up to each of us to seek Him and to make good, godly choices.


It is my prayer today that the choices you make today will have an eternal impact. Choose wisely.
