Deuteronomy 30: 19
“19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
There used to be a blinking light on our way to the beach that signaled that we were approaching a crossroad. My father and mother could never remember which road we should take. All they remembered was that one way led to the beach and the other did not.
Each day we arrive at a crossroad. We have to choose between God or the world, or as the writer of Deuteronomy put it, between life or death, blessings or curses. Hopefully, our choices will show the people around us that we are people of Christ so that they may also choose Christ at some point during their journey in life.
The road to Christ leads to life. The other road leads to death. Each day we have to choose.
May the love of Christ be with you
