“Choose for yourselves today whom you will serve” (Deuteronomy 24:15).

You and I will make a variety of decisions in the course of a day.  For the preponderance of these we will offer little consideration—what to eat, what to drink, what to wear.  But, on occasion, there are decisions that require greater contemplation—decisions that set the course and direction of your life; that define the kind of person you are; that determine how you will be remembered.  What is most telling about decision of these kind is they reflect the way you sense the future.  If you are a person who lives with hope and the anticipation of what God is doing and accomplishing it will be evident in the quality of those decisions you make today.  Only those who live with a sense of despair for tomorrow base their decisions on the convenience and expediency of the moment.

The choices you make today tell the story of what you think about the future.
