Life is full of choices. Have you ever tried to count the amount of choices you make in any given day? The average estimate of how many “remotely conscious” decisions an adult makes every day is 35,000. That’s a lot of choices! We make choices about what to wear, what to eat, where to go. But we also make choices about what to believe, how to act, what to say. When we follow Jesus, we have the option of choosing to do the things He teaches us to do or to go in the opposite direction. There will always be distractions doing their best to draw our attention away from Him and voices trying to call us in other directions. But when we continue to focus on Jesus and follow Him, we will choose His way more and more every day; and the more we choose His way, the closer to Him we’ll grow.
