"I place before you this day life and death...Choose Life"
Why this bent in our make up, why this hitch in our mental hardware?
Perhaps because the choice for life often requires, ironically, a death to oneself, to what one knows, to what one has grown accustomed to and familiar with, and therein lies the rub.
I, like Job, wasn't around when these things were being decided, when this contract was negotiated....
...but I know the One who was.....the One who was willing to die so I would have the choice to live....
I don't pretend to understand it....
but I am so very grateful for it.
may we all have the grace, courage, and strength to Choose Life.
"For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it"
