“So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.”
—1 Peter 4:19
Every day we’re faced with thousands of choices, including this one: We can choose to do what God tells us to do in His Word, or we can disregard it.
When we do what God tells us to do and make the right choices (and they’re not always easy), He will bless us. And when we don’t choose the right things, we’ll face the consequences.
God says in Deuteronomy, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” (30:19 NKJV).
