Love is A Choice

This weekend Scott Sliver spoke during the church service. He made a comment that really struck home...in more ways than just the way he intended.

He said, "Love is a choice I make through the actions I take."

That struck home with me, but then went deeper...

Worship is a choice I make through the actions I take.

Worship is not about the musical style, the dress code, or the eloquence of the message...worship is my choice I make through showing up and focusing on God.

Relationship with God is a choice I make through the actions I take.

Every day I decide to show up or not and spend time in the presence of God. I make choices in my actions each day that contribute to or detract from my growth in my relationship.

It seems like there are a lot of things where this statement applies.

Where does it apply for you?

  1. How about A strong marriage is a choice I make through the actions I take. This is particularly true in my case as Larry has become my caretaker since I was injured. He does things for me I never dreamed he would have to do and all done lovingly and with a smile. Cheers, Linda
