The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

SATURDAY, October 22

Ecclesiasticus 15:14 It was he who created humankind in the beginning, and he left them in the power of their own free choice.

When I wake, I have a decision to make. Do I stay in bed a few more minutes or do I get up? It is my power to choose. During the rest of my day, I will make many more decisions. Will I offer my day to God? Will I drive my car over the speed limit? Decisions are mine to make because I have been given the power of free choice, of free will—an awesome power to wield. We would all do well to be more conscious of how we exercise this power.
