Chapter-a-Day Jeremiah 21

“And then tell the people at large, ‘God’s Message to you is this: Listen carefully. I’m giving you a choice: life or death.” Jeremiah 21:8 (MSG)

I make life and death choices every day.

What I choose to think about. What I choose to do with my time. What I choose to say. How I choose to treat my spouse, my children, my family, my friends, my co-workers, and the stranger I meet. What I choose to do with my money. Where I choose go in my spare time.

A million little choices each day. They can be “life” choices that inch us towards life, health, goodness, and love. They can be “death” choices that inch us toward selfishness, spiritual suffocation, decay and isolation.

Today, I have a choice. I have choices. Lots of them. Each of them lead me one of two directions. I inch my way toward life, or I inch my way toward death.

Choose life.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Jeremiah 21”

  1. Pray to God for us. Ask him for help. Maybe God will intervene with one of his famous miracles…..

    That’s the kind of faith that is required to make it through life in this sinful world. My belief that God can intervene in this manner has gotten stronger this past year. I know that He has a plan for me.
