@ Greetings and blessings!
It's a blessed day.
If you drive you probably had the experience
of coming to a fork in the road.
No signs.
Do I take a left here or a right?
I often would take a wild guess
and then realize along the way
I'm going in the wrong direction.
It's an experience we can learn from.
At the time we start out those two roads
are very close together but they soon part company.
They go in completely different directions
and end in very different places.
A small choice but a big difference, right?
Each day we are standing at the fork of a road.
Do I choose me or choose God?
My way or God's way?
It doesn't seem like a major choice
but they lead to a completely different outlook on life
and a different direction of living.
The final result is also quite different.
One nice thing about roads in this world is
we can still come back
and start in the other direction.
But once we get to the end of the road of life
there is no more coming back.
We are there for eternity;
the place we have chosen each day.
The Old Testament has something meaningful
to tell us concerning this subject.
"Here, then, I have today set before you
life and prosperity, death and doom........
I have set before you life and death,
the blessing and the curse.
Choose life, then, that you
and your descendants may live"
(Got a Bible? Look it up: Deuteronomy 30:15 following)
"Lord I don't know about tomorrow
but today I choose You and Your Will"
It's a great day. Thank God for it!
And thanks for joining me.
with prayers,
Father Peter
