This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
The choice you make today may end up making or marring you tomorrow or later in life. Among the things that God has given you the power over is the power to choose and make decisions. Inside every choice is a destination. This mean that your choice will take you somewhere. Your choice today will affect your children tomorrow. The Lord pass through Joshua to instruct the children of Isreal in the passage of reference that they should choose life.
In Genesis 2:19 God instructed Adam clearly on the dos in the garden and was kind enough to tell him of the don'ts
but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die."

How merciful and caring is our God. This implies that Gods suspected that the children of Israel may likely have chosen death for themselves and children but the instruction is that
chose life that you and your children (generation) may live.

You can't choose two opposite direction at the same time. To chose one means to forgo the other. Thus, there is a choice that would lead to prosperity and one that lead to poverty. There is a choice that would lead us to eternity and there is another that leads to eternal condemnation. The choice is yours to make
You may not be rich today but the choice you make today can change you future or make you remain there in poverty. It's not about today but about tomorrow. There are people you see today and you feel like dying to have them in your life or even want to kill yourself for them. Just give it time and you would tell if it was worth it.
The Bible posits that there is a way that seemeth right but the end leads to destruction. Just pause and reflect on this, are you dying or living because of the choice you make? You can be be intelligent but not wise. Intelligence is not synonymous to wisdom. And wisdom according to the Scriptures, is profitable to direct. Some are the madness are self inflicted because of the choice that the victim made. There are people who go to the extent of manipulating peoples heart to win their love. This is not good choice at all, of course the consequence is always unbearable.
Do you know that as it is now, you don't have any right to blame anyone for your success or failure in life. You did not chose how or where you were born but you can certainly chose how you want to live your life or how you die.
