Life

As I was watching my little boy Jude crawl down the stairs today, I was overwhelmed with a sense of thankfulness for the gift of life.  The life God has given Jude.  The new life God is soon bringing to my family.  The life God has given to me personally.  If knowing joy means I must experience sadness, if knowing peace means I must experience pain, if knowing love means I must experience rejection, and if knowing life means I must experience decay and one day death… I’ll take it.  Thousands of years ago God challenged the Israelites with a simple put profound choice: see, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil. (Deuteronomy 30:15)

I choose life.

Thank you God for giving us a choice.  Thank you for offering us life.

  1. Thanks Kevin,
    Very encouraging. Many things are a sacrifice in this life but none compared to what Jesus did for us on the cross, not to mention raising from the dead!
