Choose This Day Who You Will Serve

Choose You This Day Whom You Will Serve

"Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, over fed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49

 Jesus said you would always have the poor among you. (Mark 14:7)

 The Prophet Daniel told King Nebuchadnezzar that he could liberate himself from his iniquities by showing mercy and loving-kindness to the poor and oppressed and that if he repented there may possibly be a continuance and lengthening of his peace and tranquility and a healing of his error. 

 But no, Nebuchadnezzar got to go live with the beasts of the fields and eat grass like an ox and his hair grew out and his nails were like birds claws and it took him seven years to repent and "understanding returned" to him and he could then "pray and extol and honor the King of heaven, whose works are all faithful and right and whose ways are just." Daniel 4:37

 Okay. 

 Choice #1- Live outdoors and eat a grass like a cow for seven years.

 Choice #2- Repent and do right.

 "And those who walk in pride He is able to abase and humble." Daniel 4:37

 Hummm, what will it be?

 "...choose you this day whom ye will serve: ..." Joshua 24:15 KJV

Prayer: Father, I repent today of the sin of pride and ask that you would help me to walk humbly before you. In Jesus Name. Amen
