Weighing Our Choices

English Audio Version

Life is a series of choices.

Sometimes, when we make one, other choices fade from our list of options, disappearing like a dandelion in a freshening breeze.

In the wildly popular film Back to the Future, the character played by Michael J. Fox carried a photograph of his family. His choices during the film stirred the silt of time, and one by one, his family members began to fade from the photograph.

Fox had to make quick (and wise) decisions to rescue his future from the murky waters of lost chances.

What decisions have cost us more than we wanted to pay? What have we chosen that has taken away other options that we regret losing?

Luke 16:13 says:

“No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

We can only serve one: God or money. We don’t have to give up one for the other, but we can only have one as our top priority. One will come out on top in our daily decision making.

What we choose will determine the pattern of our lives. Future choices will be lost. Options will vanish. Our lives will take on the tone of what we treasure. We will become the choices we’ve decided to pursue.

We can serve God and use our financial blessings to further his cause, or we can serve money and put God in second place. It’s time to choose. It’s time to show God he is number one.

Take time out for God, and he will look out for you.
