Every human being has the right to choose between life and death, good and evil, or success and failure. The choices people make determine their destiny. When Felicia finished secondary school, her parents wanted her to continue her education up to the university level. But she chose to get married to Paul, a rich man in the city. Shortly after they had their first child, the police arrested Paul on charges of murder. He was found guilty and the court sentenced him to several years in prison, leaving Felicia and her young child to suffer.
The power of life or death lies in your hands or in your tongue. The choices you make in life will greatly determine the path you will follow. If you choose to go with the Lord, you are certainly choosing the path of life. But if you choose the world, it will certainly lead you to destruction. Choice is a personal thing, so you must choose wisely, and not be influenced by materialism.
CHALLENGE: The power of life or of death lies in your hands.
PRAYER: Gracious Lord, teach me to choose wisely.
