“These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.”  — 1 Corinthians 10:11



Sometimes it takes “holy sweat” to mine the riches of God’s truth. To fully appreciate the impact and influences of our choices, you are going to have to locate and digest the biblical passages that give credence to the following:



·       Lot made a choice…broken lives!


·       David made a choice…broken home!


·       Jacob made a choice…broken fellowship!


·       Moses made a choice…broken dreams!


·       Adam made a choice…broken future!


·       Saul made a choice…broken peace!


·       Jehoshaphat made a choice…broken ships!


·       Samson made a choice…broken promises!


·       Joseph made a choice…broken chains!


·       God made a choice…broken heart!


·       Peter made a choice…broken curse!


·       Paul and Silas made a choice…broken jail!


·       120 in the upper room made a choice…broken silence!



Our choices truly “make us” or “break us.”  It is amazing to me that God has so simplified the existence of man so as to define him by the sum total of his choices.  We think we are really something.  It is not our choices that lend value to our lives but the fact that God has chosen to set His love upon us!
