Everyday choices

Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi

My wife and I recently traveled to Corpus Christi to visit a church there. It was a wonderful trip for me because it was a walk down memory lane. Corpus Christi is where we went on our honeymoon over 28 years ago. It got me thinking about all the twists and turns our lives had taken over the years and how we ended up where we are today. There are lots of choices we make in life, big and small. And the choices we make are what determine the people we become. You may be at a crossroads in your life and have to make a choice on what the next phase of your life is going to be. Or you may only be dealing with simple choices, like what to wear today. Regardless of what choice lies before you, I have learned the importance of leaning on the Lord as you make those decisions. So you wonder, what does God have to do with what I wear today? Well, simply think about what you’re wearing says about your lifestyle and your priorities. Is it important to you to have the latest styles and fashions? Do your clothes show respect for your body and its creator? Sometimes the correct choice is obvious, but still not easy to make. Do we ever actually stop and make a choice between going out to a nice restaurant for dinner or donating that money to help people who have no food? Even the simplest of choices speaks of your character and your relationship with God. So stop for a moment today and think about what your choices say about you and what they say about the God you claim to follow.
