“NOBILITY IS NOT A BIRTHRIGHT BUT IS DEFINED BY ONES ACTIONS.” ~KEVIN COSTNER in Robinhood Prince of theives.
I Love this movie. It has always been one of my husband and my favorites and default when we just can’t find something to watch.
As I watched tonight that line jumped from the scene into my heart. So many times we think that we will be exactly like our parents. If our parents were wonderful and did everything right we sometimes think that we can just hop on the back of that and all too soon after bad choices happen and our plans are derailed that we are left to handle those consequences by ourselves. The same goes for some of us that didn’t have the greatest upbringing or maybe didn’t have any at all. Maybe our parent did everything wrong and our fear is that we will end up just like them.
God made each of us with the ability to choose right and wrong for ourselves. He also made a way for the most horrific of circumstances to made right.
But in the end we have to make a choice. Will we go left or will we go right? Will we choose life or death? Good or evil?
Joshua 24:15 ESV
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond 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.
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,
We make choices every single day and each one changes the outcome of our lives. Will we make the right choices that lead us in the right direction or will we be rerouted like a wrong turn on our gps. How many of us have heard that annoying voice say REROUTING. God has given us his word to show us the way that is best for our lives but I have been rerouted so many times as I try to do things my own way.
So if today you have a choice to make take the time to ask Jesus to help you. Take his way and trust that if you do you will make it to the destination so much quicker.
