Question of the day: Seems like life is filled with choices. How can we be sure our choices are wise?
Answer: One synonym of precious is scarce. Seems like wisdom (the ability to make consistently wise choices) is precious. In today's reading, God presents choices. Press in to Adonai; make godly choices. Deuteronomy 30:15 "See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil."
Let me offer you a clue. God comes with a guarantee, people do not. Make choices that rely on God and not on men. Choose God, follow His righteous principles and obey His word. (Stop here to read Psalm 100.) Am I making this up, or do the Scriptures bear witness? Hear the words of Yeshua.
Mathew 7:24-27 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house; and yet it did not fall, for its foundation had been built on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house; and it fellâd great was its fall."
