Today, we enjoy time off from work to reflect, rest, and restore, as well as give thanks to our military men and women for their wonderful efforts to protect our freedoms as Americans on Memorial Day 2013.
I turned to my Bible today to the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 30. In this great book, God gives us a clear mandate to “choose life.” Obedience to His Word provides liberty and freedom even beyond what we can think or imagine. In verses, 15 to 20, God offers three scenarios:
1. Acknowledge that I have set before you the opportunity for you to choose “life and blessings” or “death and cursings.” Rest assured, it is your choice,
2. If you choose life, you and your offspring will live. However, if you choose the other option, death, you will drawn away to serve other gods, and
3. Now…choose life!! It is by far the better choice!
