Isn't it interesting how seemingly minor choices can turn out to have HUGE consequences? I'm sure we have all learned over the years that life comes down to a series of choices. Some big, some small but never the less they are choices. The overall outcome and legacy of our entire existence really is the combination of choices we've made at different times. One point that I've had the pleasure of sharing with my kids is that when they've asked me why God didn't make everyone "just love him" is that God could've very easily done just this, but he allowed us the privilege of CHOOSING him as our Lord and Savior. When we make a choice, we take ownership. Just like when we are chosen to participate in a game or serve on a team, it means something when someone chooses you. This same principal is also what allows us to make wrong choices in our daily lives.
I leave you with this; when we go thru the day, let's give it our best effort to make good choices so that the consequences are in our favor. Ask God for direction and guidance in every decision you make, our legacy depends on it. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=prov%203:5-6&version=NIV
