“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Today, You have given me a clean slate, a fresh start, a new day. Now, the choice is mine to take advantage of the blessing or to throw it away. I can be happy or sad. I can be a blessing or a curse. I can be holy or I can be sinful. Let me not choose because of how I feel but out of obedience to You.
