“And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord’’ (Joshua 24:15).Text — Joshua 24:13-22
A choice is an act of choosing between two or more possibilities. John L. Mason stated that, “A fruitful life is not the result of chance. It is the result of right choices.” Joseph made a choice to obey God’s word in an unfamiliar environment where the God of heaven was disregarded. He became a prime minister in Egypt. Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, made a choice not to defile themselves with the king’s food and God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom. Moses also chose to identify with the Jews rather than enjoy the sinful pleasures of the royal family in Egypt, and he became God’s instrument of deliverance to the nation of Israel.
The choice you make today will determine your future destination. Many youths don’t want to make the choice to obey God and follow righteous ways. They make regrettable choices like the prodigal son. How about you? If you are in their shoes, you can still make things right. It is left for you to choose the right thing. Learn from the fallen and choose wisely.
You can amend your ways.
Prayer for today
Lord, guide me in every choice I have to make.
