March 19 – Blessed to Choose Life

God has blessed us to live abundantly and yet He still leaves it up to us to make the choice.  Moses, as God’s spokesman, pleaded to the Israelites that they would choose life.  Today, the opportunity to live the abundant life is offered to us through Jesus Christ. Oh, that we would choose life!

For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.” After describing what would happen if disobedience was chosen, which doesn’t sound good at all, we read: “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!”

Deuteronomy 30:16; 19 NLT
