A Reminder for 2018 January 6, 2018

Today is the last day of the first week of a new year. Imagine each year as a puzzle with fifty-two pieces. The first piece is now in place.

Recently I heard someone talking about “chance.” Christians should not view life as an accident. Life is about choices. There are two kinds of choices:

  • There are choices God makes for us. These we must accept.
  • There are choices God gives us to make. These we must act on.

Each piece of the puzzle is either providence or a personal decision.

If God allows us to live and tarries His return, in just a few weeks we will again be celebrating the conclusion of another year. The picture that we view then will be more complete than the one we see today, but it is being created right now.

Take this verse as a reminder for every day…

A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps” (Proverbs 16:9).

Rest in the God who always chooses well and determine for your part to choose His best continually.

Ruins of the Samaritan temple on Mount Gerizim overlooking Shechem. A massive, ancient staircase leads up from the valley floor to the temple. A small remnant of Samaritans lives nearby in a village on the mountain. They still practice their ancient religion.
