Tough Choice

Tough Choice

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” (Deu 30:19)

Every day we face choices. They may be small, seemingly insignificant, tiny choices. Do we do the right thing or the wrong thing? No one will notice, we tell ourselves. No one will ever know. It seems like such a small thing. Everyone else is doing it. How wrong can it really be? Is it really that important to make a stand? What will people think?

Small choices lead to big choices. Small variations end up being big deviations, and the whole world will witness our choices. Our lives are just a sum of the choices we make. What will you choose?

Quick Prayer: I choose life. Amen.

The Wisdom of Age

The Wisdom of Age

“But Rehoboam rejected the advice the elders gave him and consulted the young men who had grown up with him and were serving him.” (1 Kin 12:8)

Grey hair is a sign of wisdom, or so the Scriptures tell us. More often than not we take it as a sign of irrelevance or not being in touch. I am all in agreement with this the greyer I become myself.

That aside, there is wisdom that comes with age. It is experience that cannot be taught. Youth and enthusiasm are great things. I love the energy around people who are fully engaged, passionate, and youthful. But I have learned over the years that there is a need to balance youthful enthusiasm with the measured contemplation that comes with those who have some years of experience. We should honor the elders in our midst, even if society and in particular commerce does not.

Quick Prayer: Father, I honor the wisdom of age. Amen.
