I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NKJV
Yes, God made us with the ability to choose between life and death. We are not robots following a lifeless script – we have the freedom to respond to life’s circumstances as we see fit. Our hearts desires influence our decisions and choices, and we get to choose moment to moment where we are headed – towards life or towards death.
How we choose to live demonstrates what we value – sin that leads to death – or living, obeying, and clinging to the Lord.
How will we live today? Wisely or foolishly?
