The good news is that we have choice. We are able to choose between a wide array of behaviors. The bad news is that not all of those choices are good choices. They are not good for us and/or good in general. Even though we are called to be "living sacrifices" (and you know what they say about the problem with "living sacrifices" is that they "have the ability (choice) to crawl off the alter), the great news is that God made the ultimate choice that saves us from our poor choices.
Lord, thank you for always saving me from myself and help me to show my thankfulness by making better choices.
