Every Choice Matters

Hello, Beloved Reader! I’m Faith. Thanks for visiting me today.

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” — Deuteronomy 30:19

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” — Galatians 6:7-10

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” — 2 Corinthians 5:10

Every choice matters

Everything you do matters. God put you on this earth to fulfill a purpose. Everything you do should be to forward that purpose. Granted, there are times when we feel like our purpose is unclear, or the steps are uncertain. And yes, there are times when we don’t know what we are doing or we don’t know what our purpose is. And sometimes, choices have many options and it is hard to determine the perfect right answer.

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” — Philippians 2:12-13

God has given us this beautiful, yet terrifying thing called freedom of choice. We can choose to do whatever we want. We can choose to live as a giver of nourishment to the hungry, or we can choose to be a mugger that slinks in alleyways. We can choose to live as the head of a multibillion-dollar business, or we can choose to live life on the streets as a beggar. Every day is filled with choices. The world runs on choices.

Think about that.

Are you choosing life or death? Are you choosing to be joyful or sorrowful? Good or bad? Godliness or ungodliness? Are you choosing to follow God or turn from the righteous path?

Every choice matters. Every choice counts. What are you choosing?
