Summary: The choices we make today have an impact on the decisions we will be making tomorrow. They establish a pattern and a foundation for our life.
Choices we Make
“…Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the
gods which your fathers served that were on the other side
of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye
dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Life is filled choices. We must choose when to go to bed and when to get up. What to eat and what not to eat. What to wear and what not to wear. We choose what to do with our time. We choose where we’ll go to work and where we’ll go out to eat. Life is filled with choices.
Some choices are easy to make. Some are difficult.
You and I are who we are today
Because of the choices we made yesterday
The choices we make today have an impact on the decisions we will be making tomorrow. They establish a pattern and a foundation for our life.
But some may say, “But pastor, I haven’t always made the right choices!” But I have good news for you.
Who we are tomorrow, is determined by the choices we make today! Every choice we make today impacts our life tomorrow.

Duet. 30:15-19 (Living Bible)
19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, that you and your descendants might live!
20 ”Choose to love the LORD your God and to obey him and commit yourself to him, for he is your life. Then you will live long in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
Every decision we make in life is based upon this decision.
Choosing life means choosing to worship and obey God.
Pray about the choice to be made.
