We ALWAYS Have A Choice

As I first read through Deuteronomy, it seemed a neverending list of laws.
In reality, God was using Moses to show the Israelites how every choice they'd make would have a consequence.

Krista Williams' teaching on Deuteronomy 27, Life Is Not A Coin Toss, brought this home for me. I realised that these lists of blessings and curses weren't just strict ultimatums. They were guiding God's people by showing them the consequences of each choice before them: Follow God's Word, or turn away from Him and go your own way, alone.

You see, we always have a choice. In any and every situation, we have the freedom to make our own decisions on how to proceed. This freedom is a luxury gifted by God. Use it wisely.

(We have a granite set like this one at home and I was able t…
