Choices

Jesus said there are two roads in life; one is the broad way that leads to destruction and the other is the narrow way that leads to life. Man has a choice; he can choose to walk the broad way or the narrow way.
If man chooses the broad way, it will lead to sin.. and perhaps a lifestyle of sin. Proverbs 5:22-23 says, “An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. He will die. for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness.”
“He will die for lack of self-control..” That’s a strong verse. It’s a reminder that. we must live disciplined lives… lives of self-control.
No one is forced to begin drinking… they make a choice to do so.
No one is forced to do drugs… they make a choice to do so.
No one is forced to live a life of sexual promiscuity… they do so on their own.
Confronted with these choices, man must choose wisely… man must exercise. self-control.
I use this quote by John Wooden frequently and it fits here… “There is a choice you make in everything you do; just remember that in the end, the choice you make, makes you.”
