CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES

Choices that we make in a personal level have both personal and generational consequences.

This means the effect of our choices be it good or bad, will not affect us but will affect others especially starting with those close to us.

If I make a choice of texting while driving, and I am involved in an accident I will suffer both bodily injury and emotional injuries or even death. In addition my wife and my children will be injured emotionally, socially, financially etc. Their lives would never be the same again, and they might never recover from the effect all because of a personal irresponsible choice that I made.

Choices that we make every day reflect our character and our integrity. From the moment we wake up in the morning, we are bombarded by choices that we are required to respond to; starting from either choosing to hit the snooze button when your alarm faithfully did what you commanded it to do the previous night or wake up because you had a reason for setting the alarm to that particular time. You have a choice of either taking tea or coffee, water or beer etc.

As you go about the day more choices come your way; keeps the speed limit or not, text while driving or not. At home, your work place, on your job related trips, at school etc; you will be faced by choices to test your character or your moral standards. You will either choose to be faithful to your parent, to your employer, to your country, to your spouse/ children, to your professor or choose to be unfaithful to them. You will choose to honor God or dishonor Him with the choices that you make.

David as a King made a number or wrong choices that resulted to many innocent people to suffer and even die, but God is so gracious and loving who is always willing to give us an opportunity to start over again. 

This is what God says to us; 
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 

CHOOSE WELL! CHOOSE RESPONSIBLY!!CHOOSE LIFE!!!
