They can Choose to:
Wouldn't it be nice if life were really that simple? I guess it really can be. When in our decision making if we were to think about these 5 things i wonder if we would have a revolution on our hands. The only choice I see lacking is the choice to give. But I guess when choosing the choice Jesus, He encompasses all those things together and more.
I have to admit, I don't always make the right choice. There are times when I am even convinced I am making the right choice, and I really don't. I mean, I have a HUGE list of those. But I am thankful for the choice to forgive, because I need to not only forgive others, but my myself as well. I am my own worst critic and I am always beating myself up for "that"thing I said or did.
So..back to choices (I'm really tired!). I am amazed at how well these kids grasp the simplicity. In the beginning of summer I was questioning the real usefulness of VBS. For our community , it is used more as a cheap day camp and I was wondering, how many kids do we really touch.
But through this week I have re-learned that I need to choose to believe- believe that God works in all things, in all circumstances and in all attitudes....even in something as simple as VBS.
The kids have shown me that......and seeing their faces light up every day, I can see that they really are trying to choose Jesus.
