We make them every day. Some are conscious and others aren’t. Even if we don’t make a choice, we have inadvertently made a choice. We didn’t have a choice about being conceived or being born, or who our parents and family turned out to be. But we do have choices on how we respond to them, especially as we get older and have some control over our behavior and thought processes.
We can choose to hate people who have hurt us or choose to forgive. We might be in a difficult relationship but ultimately we can choose to risk leaving and freeing ourselves from that situation or remain in it.
We can choose to apply for jobs, or change when we aren’t completely comfortable with them. Situations change, people change and priorities change. Nothing remains the same. The interaction with people affect our choices. Health and job stability may play a factor, but whatever the case, choices are made.
Change is scary for some. Others call it adventure and follow wherever the heart and mind desire.
Most of us like our lives to remain constant and predictable. However the world is in flux all the time and whether we like it or not, choices must be made in order to keep going.
Jesus made a choice. He chose to descend from heaven and live among us. He chose to sacrifice His life for each of us. He chose and because of his choice; it has made all the difference,
What kind of choices are you making today?
