The Choices You Make Today

April 26, 2019

Greetings Friends, Grace and peace to you in the name of God our Father and the Lord and the Holy Spirit. I thank God for you and the opportunity He has given me to share His Word with you concerning the choices we make in life. Lord Lead and guide me so that I may accurately express your word concerning the matter. Thank you in Jesus name, Amen.

Who among us knows at what point in our lives we began to make choices. I am inclined to believe we start making choices very early in life. Some children are able to crawl at about 5 months old. At this early age, babies began to choose objects that are before them. It was the responsibility of our parents to teach us to make the right choices, just as it is our responsibility to teach our children the importance of making the right choices in life. Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn From it (Prov 22:6). This is not just a wise saying it is truth put in the simplest of terms that even a baby can understand. If we apply it to our lives it is overwhelmingly rewarding. The instruction we receive concerning choices should begin at an early stage of life. The older a person gets the choices they make are even more consequential.

Every choice you make has consequences, negative or positive, one way or the other. The choices you make directly affects how you are going to relate to people and the world around you. For example, we know that in order to live not dependent on the government to support us we must take advantage of the educational opportunities available for every citizen of this country. If you decide to make the choice to go after the educational opportunities that are available to you, this can enable you to financially provide for yourself, your family and even help others along the way. If you don’t choose to pursue the educational opportunities then you can look forward to a very difficult life financially, of course, there are some exceptions but typically unless you’re a skilled laborer such as a carpenter or electrician you will limit yourself to manual labor at minimum wage salary. With the cost of living as high as it is you may find it very difficult to make ends meet. Can you imagine the problems and the challenges that are presented to a person that makes the wrong choice? They are more susceptible to illegal ways of becoming financially independent. This Leads to all types of immoral unlawful sinful behavior, from one extreme to another. From rape to murder, total depravity.

My Friends the choices you make today will have an effect on your tomorrow. We often recite this verse of scripture found in God’s word in the book of Proverbs 22:6 Start up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. This verse of scripture is wisdom from God and century after century it proves to be true. The choices you make determine what your future will be like. There is a choice that you have to decide to make and this decision will affect your future in eternity. God who created the heavens and the earth, and everything in it, the same person who gave His word in Proverbs 22:6, gave this word in the book of John 3:16. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life. The choice is yours. Will you spend eternity in Heaven or will you spend eternity in immediate suffering in the lake of,? Hell?

God Bless you, My Friends, I pray you have made or are making the right choice.
