JE # 34 – Making Choices

Enero 20, 2008 How many times did you make choices today? There are situations where you can easily decide on what to do because that is the right thing to do. Sometimes there is a confusion in making choices. One may decide between the better and the best options. But, Should we confuse ourselves if the options are between good and evil? Robert Frost, an American poet wrote a poem about life’s choices.

Two roads diverged in a wood,

and I – i took the one less traveled by

and that has made all the difference

Most people travel on a broad road. People just like the “easy” way – a way that is convenient. Just because everybody is doing it (an evil practice), you will now go with the flow. Jesus is telling us in Matthew to choose the narrow road which leads to life.

You will pass by the narrow road if you stand up against corruption while everybody is involve in it. You will pass by the narrow road if you say “No” to drugs while your friends are consuming it. You will pass by the narrow road if you say, “No” to immoral act while your colleagues say “it’s OK”.

Life is a matter of choices.

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

-Joshua 24:15

Now, you choose, the god of this world , which could bring you to destruction in afterlife or the LORD who promised to give us an abundant life both now and for eternity.
