We Have to Decide


I’m joining the Five Minute Friday community with Kate Motaung…5 minutes, no rewriting, and a one word prompt…
Decide

Every day we make choices. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we make decisions all day long.

What to have for breakfast...what to wear...which chores to get done...how much time to spend scrolling through Facebook...when to go to bed, etc.

But the most important decision of all is whether or not to follow Jesus.

What do you mean? I'm a Christian…of course I follow Jesus.

Yes, but every day, we're met with challenges and how we react makes a difference.

Will I act out of my own desires or follow Jesus’ example? We have to decide.

Every day is hard. Temptations threaten to pull us down a different road than the one God wants us to follow.

We have to decide...my will or His?

It's a choice we have to make...today, tomorrow, and every day after that.

In Christ,
Laura
