Remember enjoying that second piece of German Chocolate cake when you know your limit is only a sliver? You know you get sick when you eat too much chocolate. But it tastes so good … and you just want more. Nothing mystical. You just want more. All that gooeyness on top of chocolate delight waits for you. In no time your tummy later reminds you why so much richness at one time isn’t a good idea, and you’re sick for the rest of the day.
All choices are like that. We have free will. And consequences always wait for us. God is consistent.
In a week we will be asked to make a choice. Do you vote on what makes sense to you? Do you vote on what people tell you is right? Or out of pure frustration, do you choose to not vote at all? All choices. All bear consequences.
I am not going to try to influence your choice, but only your process. Seek wisdom before your choose.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 (NIV)
After you make your choice and the results are in, remember two things: God is bigger than the election and He is never surprised. If you are not happy with the results, thank God. If you are happy with the results, thank God. Remember, He honors your right to choose–he honors free will.
As Christians, we are just passing through. Be the source of light for others to influence their choice–for Christ. That’s the choice we need to be concerned about more than any other.
