It’s funny to watch two children staring at the last slice of pizza or the last piece of birthday cake, trying to decide who will get it. Even as adults, we find ourselves racing other people to the closest parking space, or arranging details to be sure we get with the biggest portion of a business deal. When we let our desires lead us instead of asking God for direction, we will never end up where He wants us to be. So, what is driving your choices in life right now?
Choose Whom You Will Serve
Nowadays when we go in for surgery, a surgeon is able to both examine a patient for problems and fix any problems he may find; as long as the patient agrees and signs the consent form. If the patient does not agree, the surgeon does not fix the problem. The Lord reveals sin in our life. If we do not consent to His removing of these sins, they will remain. A Christian must choose to serve the Lord and put away all forms of idolatry.
