Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 01/25/2015

Choose wisdom, and find some at Proverbial Thought!

The poem today is based on two passages of Scripture:

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days
Deuteronomy 30:19-20a, ESV

… and …

And [Jesus] said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
Luke 9:23

Like last week’s poem discussed, we must choose every day to love God and love others, and it requires personal sacrifice.

  the Choice    

the Choice to be made
every single day
is to love people
or decide to hate
a decision to lie
or offer your life
or give everything
over to Jesus Christ
the Choice is in Him
to turn away from sin
and see that in Jesus
true life will begin
your Choice is the same
give up a life of pain
for a life that Jesus
can restore from blame
