Summary: Life is full of choices. Choice wisely. Choose life and blessing.
“There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles.” -Stephen Covey
"Every choice you make has an end result." -Zig Ziglar
“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.” -William Jennings Bryan

“Choices determine character.” ― Brandon Mull, Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary
“You can't make positive choices for the rest of your life without an environment that makes those choices easy, natural, and enjoyable.” -Deepak Chopra
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.” ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Choose You This Day Whom YOU Will Server:
Jesus unto salvation and eternity in Heaven with peace for evermore
Sin and Worldliness unto an eternity in a devil’s hell with torment for evermore.
There is a popular saying out today:
WWJD (What Would Jesus Do):
I think it would be better if it said: WWJND (What Would Jesus Not Do).
Choices are a fact-of-life.
Some choices are harder than others:
“An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.” ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Moses & Joshua both gave the people a choice between life&death, blessing&crusing.
It would reason that the choice was obvious and easy.
Yet today we live in a world in-which people are constantly choosing death&crusing.
Make better/right choices.
Originally, God intended that the first-born of each Jewish family would be a kohen (priest) –to be that family's representative to the Holy Tabernacle/Temple.
Exodus 13:1-2 “1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel… it is mine.”
Exodus 24:3-5 “3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do. 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.”
That plan got changed with the incident of the Golden Calf. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai and smashed the tablets.
The first tablets were written on stone by the finger of God.
Moses (man) broke the tablets.
The second set of tablets was written on stone by Moses (man).
