Choose Wisely

Deuteronomy 30:19

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

God told the Israelites that He had a command for them.

This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, and it is not beyond your reach. – Deuteronomy 30:11

It wasn’t difficult, it wasn’t out of reach; it was the ability to choose Him, to choose a better life. He said if you choose me, you choose prosperity.

Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. – Deuteronomy 30:15

It’s pretty plain and simple.

Everyday, most of us choose to believe that we have no say in what happens to us. While some of that may be true, we do have a say in how we handle what happens. The world would have us believe there is no right or wrong choice for our life. Newsflash, there is. And we get to pick one or the other.

There’s no need to roll the dice. No Magic 8 Ball necessary. No tarot cards or horoscopes are needed. You pick.

God has given us the ability to choose. Right or wrong? Life or death? Heaven or Hell? It’s your pick. So what’s it going to be?
