Now Choose Life! by John Hagee
Deuteronomy 30:19—This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.  Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.

Now choose life!

Moses knew the power of choice to bring blessings or curses upon the nation of Israel.  In one of history’s most dramatic statements, he stood before all Israel and shouted Deuteronomy 30:19 with all the power of his aged voice.

When Abraham and Lot stood together on the fertile plains of Jordan, Lot made the choice that was to be his undoing.  “So Lot chose for himself the whole plain of the Jordan” Genesis 13:11.  He pitched his tent toward Sodom, ignoring the moral and spiritual dangers.

Hear the hissing of the brimstone as it falls from the sky, bringing annihilation to Sodom.  See the sons and daughters of Lot running in panic, futilely seeking a place of refuge.  This was the consequence of their father’s choice.

Who’d Choose Unhappiness?

Abraham Lincoln said, “Most people are about as happy as they choose to be.”  How true!  It’s hard to imagine that someone might actually choose unhappiness over happiness.  But millions do every day; often for reasons even they don’t fully understand.  Some choose unhappiness to manipulate those around them, to get attention or sympathy.  Some choose unhappiness indirectly, because they don’t know where or how to find happiness.  Some religious people choose unhappiness as living proof of their “superior spirituality.”

A minister was preaching on happiness.  His congregation was laughing with joy, when suddenly; a self-righteous religious peacock stood and icily rebuked the minister and the congregation for their laughter.  Without missing a beat, the minister intoned, “Let us now allow this unhappy brother to lead us in a moment of corporate misery.”

Now choose happiness!
