“Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day”(Deuteronomy 11:26,27)Text — Deuteronomy 11:26-28
According to John L. Mason, “A fruitful life is not the result of chance. It is the result of right choices.” Therefore, making a good choice in any situation in life depends largely on the individual and hence the need to seek counselling from knowledgeable God-fearing people before any choice is made. Biblical figures like Joseph and Moses made right choices in Egypt and God blessed them. So did Ruth in relocating to Bethlehem-Judah with Naomi.
The text today shows the eternal counsel of God to mankind. It presents the two alternatives on earth to man, blessing and curse, life and death, heaven and hell, and compassionately counsels him to choose blessing. Apostle Peter counselled the sinful ones in his days: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19). If you are living in sin, make haste and make the best choice now. Repent of your sins. Your choice will determine your destiny.
Your choice will determine your destiny
Decision determines destiny.
