And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.” – Genesis 2:16-17


Life is full of choices: some conscious … some not. We have all had to make some difficult ones and we have even had others made for us. When others make choices (good or bad), we can be negatively (or positively) impacted by their decisions.

Choices, by nature, imply options. These options (and their outcomes) can often seem equal, requiring wisdom and discernment to dictate our actions. There are, however, also those moments in life when the options are clearly separated by the distinct presence of darkness or light (right versus wrong) and one must choose between God’s desires and his or her own personal passion.

Today you will have one (or many) choices to make. Choose wisely … choose God.

You are doomed to make choices. This is life’s greatest paradox. – Wayne Dyer
