Choices That Make or Break
Life is all about choices. Make good ones and you walk in the blessing, make bad ones and you’ve got problems! This book examines the lives of people in the Bible, the choices they made, the factors that drove those choices, the outcomes they experienced, and how their choices had a profound impact on their lives and legacy. First Corinthians 10:6-11 states that these real life Bible accounts are recorded as examples for us, to help us to make the right choices for our own lives.
Our everyday choices matter, because those choices cumulatively determine our future and become our destiny. With every choice we make, we are writing the story of our lives, and the legacy that we will leave on planet earth. Wrong choices with tragic consequences don’t often appear huge at the time. They may look like “little” things that end up costing us much more than we ever dreamed.
In Deuteronomy 30:19, God says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life, so that you and your descendants may live.” This scripture makes it crystal clear that our choices affect, not only us, but our children and future generations. It is critical that we choose right.
This book helps us to learn from the lives of those who have gone before us, so that we would not make the same mistakes that they made.
