Have you ever wondered how many decisions you make per day? Researchers estimate that a person makes approximately 35,000 choices each day – both big and small. Life is full of choices, and while some don’t make a huge difference, many can greatly alter the course of your future as well as that of others. The ability to choose is a great power given by your Creator. Each choice has consequences…and sometimes rewards.
I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life.
In today’s verse, Moses offers the Israelites a choice given by God. He promised that if they obeyed Him, He would bless and prosper them while defeating their enemies. However, if they turned away from Him and worshiped other gods, they would be cursed and perish.
God offers the same choice today to His followers. Pray that the citizens of the country and its leaders will return to the Lord and choose life – so that He may once again pour His blessings out upon the nation.
