A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

Created to make choices

I went to a pastor’s meeting this week and I was forced into taking a job I did not want.  In reality, I made a choice to do the job I didn’t like.  I was put in a position of either, disappointing good and loyal friends who support my ministry or taking a position I didn’t want to take.  Romans 14:12 says,  So each of us will have to answer to God.

Each of us have choices and we make choices.  We do have the opportunity to talk to God about all the choices we make when we pray.  It is one of the mysteries of the world that God gave us the ability to make good and bad choices.

We know the story of how Eve was deceived by the serpent.  But she made a choice.  The Bible tells us that Adam was not deceived; he choose to follow Eve.

There are two kinds of choices that we make.  Like Eve, we may be tricked into making the wrong choice.  But too often we are like Adam, we find ourselves in a place where we know what we should do but we choose to do something that is wrong.

It is wonderful when we might be tricked, or pressured, or forced but we still make the choice ourselves to do the right thing.  In the long race, right or wrong–we decide on our own to do what we do.

Each of us makes choices each day.  While we alone must make the choices we make, there is a way that God has provided for us.  Prayer.  We should talk to God about the choices we make.  Jesus will always help us to make the best choices in our lives.
