I Choose Life!

Deut. 30:19: I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live.

When my son, Erik, was just a toddler, he walked up to our fireplace and said, "No, no, no, no, no," and then lunged forward. I only wanted to protect him. At that age, he had no concept of fire.

Fortunately, I was there to rescue him before he was burned. However, as Erik grew, I wasn't there to move him from dangerous situations. It was a choice he had to make for himself.

As we mature in Christ, He expects us to obey Him too. As any loving parent, He wants what is best for us. He's not trying to keep us from having fun!

Today I choose life and blessings, and hope you will do the same!
