Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the LORD your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NLT)
Choices can make all the difference in the world. We are constantly taking in data, predicting and making decisions. There are so many choices to make each day we cannot keep count. However, some choices are more important than others. Vanilla or chocolate ice cream may not affect your world one little bit. But moral or legal issues can alter your life. The friends you choose, the things you choose to do can steer the direction of your life. Who you are going to marry, college choices, career choices are life-altering milestones. But the one choice that guides all others is your choice to follow God or not. Moses calls it “choosing life”. And like many major choices, they are only as good as the thousands of little choices you make to support your decision. You can decide to cross the ocean in a sailboat, but it is the daily choices you make in re-correcting your course that gets you to the other shore. In the marriage ceremony, we ask the groom, “Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, and forsaking every other, keep to her only, so long as you both shall live?” He can say, “I do” but it is only as good as him getting up every day and saying, “I will!” Moses said that you can choose life by making a choice to love God, obey Him and committing yourself firmly to Him. Today choose to follow God in all you do because “choosing to follow God is the key to your life.”
Father, today I choose You. I choose to live for You. I choose to follow you in all that I do. Guide me, direct me. Give me the strength to do this, in Jesus’ name.
