Today’s Topic: “Buyers Beware”
Deuteronomy 30:19 the Bible says, “Today I am giving you a choice of two ways. And I ask heaven and earth to be witnesses of your choice. You can choose life or death. The first choice will bring a blessing. The other choice will bring a curse. So choose life! Then you and your children will live.”
There are consequences to every decision we make in life. There are blessings when we choose life that you and your children will benefit. Things happen because of the choices we make in life. Someone can totally miss their greatest season because short term benefits are more appeasing to those with bad vision.
God, in His wisdom, decided to make life easy for us by encouraging us to “choose life.”
Benefits and consequences are different. Life is single file. Everyone is responsible for their own choices. God will never lead you where His grace cannot provide for you and your children. It doesn’t matter the path others are on. What matters most is where you are going with the choice ticket you purchased.
The curse of making the wrong choices can be broken and stop with you.
God in His wisdom decided to make life easier by encouraging us to choose life. Choose life, that both you and your children may live well. Benefits are better than consequences.
God definitely only wants what’s good for you and not evil…but it’s fully dependent on your choice. Life, if well lived, is long enough.
Prayer Time: Father, help us to make the right choices so we can enjoy a good life. Here and hereafter. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Choose life! Then you and your children will live well.
