THE RIGHT CHOICE!

Deuteronomy 30:19 – Devotional

Deuteronomy 30:19

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: choose life, that both you and your seed may live.”

Here is a news flash: YOU CANNOT MAKE DECISIONS FOR PEOPLE! Frequently we parents wish we could somehow make the right decisions for our kids that would keep them free from harm and danger—but we can’t!

Way back in the 1960’s, when I was a Juvenile Probation Officer, I seemingly had the lives and future of these delinquents in my hands. It was an awesome responsibility. Repeatedly I would explain the consequences of their actions only to discover within a short time that they had been arrested yet again.

I have to admit that it would have been easy to give up on these kids, but often I was the only one who was on their side (even if they didn’t know it). I felt that God had placed me in a position to offer them a hope for their future.

Try as hard as I might there came a time when I had done all that was in my power to do. I had to let go and allow them to “sink or swim.” Some failed to swim!! We can do our best for those who God has allowed us to minister to, but there comes a time when we must leave the choice up to them!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing.
