Whose Choice

As we grow people give us more and more chances to make choices. It is part of a parent's work to help children make good choices. So you just put before a child two good choices all the time. Then they can't go wrong.
The other day I heard a mother put before a small child a choice. She said you have three books you can only get two which two will you take. The child stood still, not moving, just holding the three books that somehow she had brought from the children's dept to the register. She must have been 3 or 4, no older. I was amazed and didn't think that the little one really had the capacity to make such a decision. But she did. I thouth there may have been easier ways for that to have happened. I thik that the little one should have been given that directive before she got to the register.

What choices does God put before us. Well the world puts amazing choices all the time. The world says spend money on extras, and God says, give it to the poor. The world says there is never enough, God says there is plenty for all and some left over. The world says play hard doing whatever is necessary to be first, God says, love one another...
There are others..
What choices come to your life? What choice will you make... this way or that way..

figure it out with God's help

God abide
