Deuteronomy 30:15 (ESV)
“15 See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil. 16 If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in his ways, and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to take possession of it.”
Everyday we are faced with decisions we must make. Some more important than others, but nevertheless they are decisions that impact our daily lives in one way or another. For those with children it could be the school you choose to send your children to or letting them miss because they claim to be sick. The first question question seems to be more important, however they both affect daily living and can hold long term effects.
The Children of Israel were being prepared to go into the land the Lord had promised them, however the Lord needed to make clear that every decision they make has consequences. However, if they first choose to love God with all of their heart, then they will be prosperous in their lives. Because if they first love God, then the rest of the decisions they make will exemplify their love for God and they will make choices based on their live for God.
In our lives we can reach our full potential and be blessed but we must first choose to Love God with ALL we have. When we choose to Love God with all of our hearts then we are faced with tough decisions we will choose that which gives most glory to God. When we are faced with a decision to lash out with harsh words or turn the other cheek and show the forgiveness that was given to us through Jesus, the decision will be simple. When you choose to love God with everything you have, you are also making a decision that will directly affect the decisions of your future. In return you family will be blessed and they will know to also Choose Life! God Bless.
