Choose Today

This post is written to link with Five Minute Friday: write for five minutes on a one-word prompt.
The prompt today is “choose.”

Choices seems to be a recurring theme this week – I wrote a few days ago about “the choice you won’t regret“.

As I read the FMF prompt though, a Bible verse came to mind:

“Choose today whom you will serve.” (Joshua 24:15 NLT)

Now that Joshua and the people had reached the Promised Land and begun to settle there, they had a choice about how they were going to live. Were they going to follow the practices of the tribes around them, or were they going to put God first?

It’s a choice we have to make too.

Maybe, like me, you have already made the choice to follow God, whether that was recently or several years ago.

But we still have an ongoing choice to make every day.

“Choose today whom you will serve.”

Today will I choose to seek God?

Today will I choose to listen for his voice and to obey?

Today will I choose to love others and attempt to see them as God sees them?

Today will I choose to put God first?

I know the choice I want to make.

  1. Choose today whom you will serve
    sometimes appears as wait-staff power
    when they display the prideful nerve
    to ignore me for an hour
    with a menu in my hand
    and hunger gnawing at my belly.
    Really, I don’t understand;
    has something good come on the telly?
    I would as lief just walk away,
    but I do like their Steak Diane,
    seeing all the sauces play
    tableside in frying pan,
    and therefore will accept my fate
    to wait and wait and wait and wait.

  2. Life is a result of the daily choices we make. I’m thankful for guidance to make some great choices along the way and grateful for God redeeming some of the bad choices I’ve made along the way. 🙂
