The Greatest Choice
Life is full of choices. The greatest choice of all is choosing what we will think. We choose how we control our minds. We are responsible for what we think and what we do with our thoughts. And we are responsible for the results of our thoughts. When we decide what we will allow to motivate us, we decide what kind of people we will be.
We chose whether to be positive of negative, angry, violent, depressed, or worried. We choose to either be constructive, using emotions that build us up, or to be negative, using emotions that damage us and those around us. We choose to be satisfied in God’s promises or to be selfish, filled with worldly desires.
Most importantly, we choose either eternal life with Jesus Christ or eternity without Him based on choosing to align ourselves with God in this life.
